v5 backup can't restore to v4 - not compatible

I have Backup4All v5 on my newer Windows 8 PC and v4 on my older Windows 10 PC (was Windows 8 before upgrade). I'm trying to move all my files from the newer PC. I backed up my files with Backup4All v5. I tried to restore to the older PC which has Backup4All v4. I always get the error "not compatibl...

Restore latest version - but not if already restored

I purchased a new PC and I am copying all my files to the new PC from the old PC by using Backup4All. I started this previously and restored files on the new PC, but now I did a more recent backup of the old PC and I am restoring it to the new PC. Backup4All Restore asked if I wanted to overwrite a ...

Upgrade to 5.0

My B4A indicated an upgrade to version 5.0 was available.
When I tried to install it, it said my old license will not work and I must purchase a new license.
Why not tell me before I download the upgrade - that I have to buy B4A again???? Why waste my time?
Fortunately, the old version still works.

Re: Problem with B4A and Windows 8

B4A consistently locked my PC up for 20 or 30 minutes, then worked OK on Win 8.
After upgrading to Win 8.1 I have never had a problem.

Re: Problem with B4A and Windows 8

I did successfully restore to my new PC using the backup from my older PC. Not sure, but the problem appears to be that Windows 8 is locking up and extremely slow - with many applications and not just B4A. After walking away from the PC for 30 minutes, B4A was started and it then worked. The only ot...

Re: Problem with B4A and Windows 8

I'm not sure what backup software comes on the Toshiba Win 8 machines that are sold at OfficeMax. I'm finding "Windows 7 File Recovery" and "File History" listed in an Internet search. They are commonly on Win 8 systems. I have not loaded any backupsoftware other than B4all. Are there specific softw...

Windows 8 locks every time I try to start B4A, and not even Alt-Ctl-Del will work. Have to force PC to sto...
