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

Hi,

Yes, you can import the backup jobs and settings from version 4.
Just open Backup4all 7 and go to File->Tools->Import from version 4.

You can also just open in Backup4all 7 the .bkc catalogs from the backup destination. That will also import the backup jobs in Backup4all 7.

I've now upgraded 4.8 to 7.3 and the existing backup job was auto imported on install.

However now getting an error in Backup Properties / Type - "Save storage space method not set or invalid (see "type" page)"

We do incrementals saving the last 10 versions without automatically making a full backup. I can't get past the error no mater what I select.

Hi,

Please go to Type->Storage page and set the limit for number of backups. Then press Save.

Thanks, that worked.

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