SyncBack Touch licensing

SyncBack Touch licensing

SyncBack Touch (SBT) provides a convenient and easy way to back up your home or business information located on computers, mobile phones, tablets or other devices that run Windows, macOS or Android. However, SyncBack Touch is not a standalone application, it needs either SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE to perform backup, restore or sync operations.

Each licensed copy of SyncBackPro or SyncBackSE V7 (or newer versions) comes with 2 free connections to 2 SyncBack Touch devices. If required, you can purchase additional SyncBack Touch connection licenses to backup other Windows, macOS or Android devices available at your home or business.

Here are some examples of SyncBack Touch devices you can connect to based on the number of SyncBackSE/Pro license purchased:

1 SyncBackSE/Pro license = 2 free SyncBack Touch connections
2 SyncBackSE/Pro license = 4 free SyncBack Touch connections
3 SyncBackSE/Pro license = 6 free SyncBack Touch connections, and etc...

The above example applies to both personal and business usage.

If the 2 free SyncBack Touch connections are not enough, you can purchase additional SyncBack Touch licenses. A separate SyncBack Touch license must be purchased for each additional device you want to connect using Touch. Installation SyncBack Touch on each computer, Mac machine or Android device, counts as one installation (including one per virtual machine).

SyncBack Touch licensing applies for both home and business uses.

SyncBack Touch licenses are controlled either by SyncBackPro/SE application (by default) or SBMS (SyncBack Management Service).

SyncBackPro/SE as the License Manager for SyncBack Touch

When using SyncBackPro/SE application to control SyncBack Touch licensing, the 2 free connections can be used without any serial registration.

If more SyncBack Touch licenses are purchased, you can register the serial number from SyncBackPro/SE main-interface -> Help menu -> SyncBack Touch Licenses page or via the Licenses button on Modify -> SyncBack Touch settings page.

SBMS as the License Manager for SyncBack Touch

Businesses/Commercial licensees are recommended to use SBMS with SyncBack Touch for security and licensing as it is easier to register and manage licenses on a centralized server. However, you can configure SBMS as the license manager for SyncBack Touch only when using SyncBackPro (SyncBackSE cannot use SyncBack Touch devices that are using SBMS for licensing).

When using SBMS as the license manager for SyncBack Touch, the 2 free connections are activated upon registration of SBT license in SBMS (that means you have to purchase a Touch license and register it in SBMS to activate the 2 complementary connections).

SyncBack Touch serial number can be registered using SBM console (Service menu -> Register Serial Number page) and you have to configure SyncBack Touch server to connect to SBMS, in order to verify the SBT license before performing backup, restore or synchronization (refer to SyncBack Touch help file for the information about SyncBack Touch and SBMS configuration).
