Re: Upgrade 4.8 to 7.3

Thanks, that worked.

I had to quit the application, restart, then go directly to Type - Storage to avoid getting locked in the error dialogue.

Upgrade 4.8 to 7.3

After many years successfully using 4.8 we are looking to upgrade to 7.3 to take advantage of cloud backups.

Can I do this as a direct upgrade install retaining all existing jobs or is it start from fresh ?

Cheers
Neil

Now need to run the same backup on a newer server and want to retain all the old incremental history.

V4 Incremental - max file versions

Been running an daily incremental for almost a year keeping all file versions. Now to save space want to limit max number of kept file versions. If I edit the exiting backup job to suit will the next run remove all unwanted extra versions or do I need to create a new job and restart from scratch ?

Catalogue Rebuild

Can Backup4all rebuild it's catalogue from the backup zip files should the original catalogue be lost ? Also is a copy of the catalogue kept within the zip files themselves ?
