Knowledgebase: RBS Client
Moving an installed client to another machine

This article describes the procedure for moving the RBackup Client software to another computer, after it has been running for a while on the original computer. This is done to maintain the original settings, encryption keys, and passwords.

Note: The folder structure on the new computer must be identical to that of the old computer IF you want to be able to restore files to their original locations. Otherwise, restored files will create folders in the old structure on restore to the new computer. In many cases, this is what you want. In some, itÔÇÖs not.

Install the RBackup Client software from a distribution CD or the Internet onto the new computer.

When asked for any input, like name, address, username, password, ANYTHING, click the CANCEL button. Click CANCEL until the new RBackup Client stops without registering.

Copy the file c:\program files\Remote Backup\backup.mdb from the old computer into the same folder on the new computer.

Start the RBackup Client on the new computer and verify that it works.

Uninstall the RBackup Client software from the first computer.

CAUTION: DO NOT leave the Client software on the first computer. If it runs it may over-write backup files from the new computer.
