If upgrading from version 7, please follow these steps: http://www.altaro.com/upgradev7
To upgrade Altaro VM Backup please follow the following three steps:
- Exit the Altaro VM Backup Management Console from the top right control box
- Download the latest version of Altaro VM Backup from the button below:
- Launch the installer and follow the on screen wizard
Your old backup settings, backup history and license key information will be migrated to the new version automatically.
The only difference between a first time installation and an upgrade is that the management console must be closed before attempting to upgrade. If the installer detects that the management console is running then you will be prompted to close it.
Note: It is good practice to temporarily disable any on-access virus scanning during the upgrade and to ensure no backups are in progress at the time of upgrade either.
