Updating from version 5 to 6

Postby Jim Rockford » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:54 pm

I've been reluctant to update to version 6 because, in my attempted upgrade from 4 to 5, I found that I had to recreate all my jobs. This was a tremendous nuisance. Recreating the jobs themselves was not a big deal, but the first mirror backup for each takes a long time, and that's where the pain comes in.

Is the upgrade from 5 to 6 a genuinely smooth one, in the sense that one import old jobs (created in v5) into v6 and NOT have to re-run them as if they were first time creations?

Hi,

The import should work smoothly and you should be able to continue the backups. That is the normal behavior.
If you want, in version 5 you can create a backup job for the FBackup configurations. In case something does not work fine, you can revert to version 5.
Then try to run the upgrade.
