AFAIK when you plug them back in they will "magically" reappear, they just wont be displayed while they are unplugged

You would only lose the bindings if you re-install Windows, or if you move your DCS onto a new PC, or if you replace the PC's mainboard.

 

 

To save the bindings, it is best if you backup regularly the whole /Saved Games/DCS/ folder ... this way you not only save the bindings, but also your Logbook, your custom missions, custom liveries, etc.

 

For work: iMac mid-2010 of 27" - Core i7 870 - 6 GB DDR3 1333 MHz - ATI HD5670 - SSD 256 GB - HDD 2 TB - macOS High Sierra

For Gaming: 34" Monitor - Ryzen 3600X - 32 GB DDR4 2400 - nVidia GTX1070ti - SSD 1.25 TB - HDD 10 TB - Win10 Pro - TM HOTAS Cougar - Oculus Rift CV1

Is saving the folder is all it takes? no saving profile ingame before?

On the controls screen there's an option to "Save Profile as." It saves the profile for the column you currently have selected (i.e. if a throttle setting has been highlighted, it saves the entire profile for the throttle). It defaults to saving the default named file in the default location. I navigate to a backup folder and rename as appropriate.

 

If I ever have a problem with DCS automatically loading the profile as Rudel described, I use "Load Profile" (make sure you have the correct device highlighted) and it will instantly restore my bindings for that device.

 

Considering that most HOTAS are a combination of Joystick+Throttle, it's helpful to remember that DCS see's them as separate devices (assuming you don't have them virtually combined).
