Do I need to uninstall SyncBackFree before installing SyncBackSE? Do I need to uninstall SyncBackSE before installing SyncBackPro?
There is no need to
uninstall previous versions of SyncBackFree or SyncBackSE. All profiles
from SyncBackFree will be imported automatically when SyncBackSE is
first run. Likewise, SyncBackSE profiles will be imported by SyncBackPro
when it is first run. There are also options to do so manually (as appropriate) on the Profiles menu.
After upgrading from SyncBackFree to SyncBackSE or SyncBackPro, and your profiles have been imported, you can safely uninstall SyncBackFree without it affecting your SyncBackSE or SyncBackPro installation. Equally, if you upgrade from SyncBackSE to SyncBackPro, and your profiles have been imported, you can safely uninstall SyncBackSE without it affecting your SyncBackPro installation.
SyncBackPro, SyncBackSE, and SyncBackFree can all be installed on the same machine. For example, if you wish to trial SyncBackPro, and are already using SyncBackSE, then you could install SyncBackPro, trial it, and then later uninstall it without it affecting your SyncBackSE installation.
- such imports only work from 'lower' to 'higher' versions of SyncBack, and not the converse.
Notes re automated profile imports:
- automated profile imports will not include the Schedules, to avoid multiple-triggering of profiles of the same name, at the same time, in two or more versions of SyncBack. This is highly likely to cause conflicts/errors. If you want to switch your Scheduled profiles over, you need to delete the Schedules from the version where they were created and re-create them from the version where you want them.
