Q & A:

Q) Can I backup my current Yadis! Backup installation and revert in case of trouble?
A) No, not yet, though there are plans to create a installation backup/restore functionality for Yadis! Backup.

Q) Can I reinstall an older (production) version if the beta version causes trouble.
A) Yes you can, though your settings files might be upgraded to reflect new functionality in the beta version.
No guarantees can be given that your tasks will still run properly.
You can however make a manual copy of your settings before upgrading to the beta version.
These are the files you should backup/restore:
- On XP:
C:\Program Files\Codessentials\Yadis
C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application data\Codessentials\Yadis

- On Vista:
C:\Program Files\Codessentials\Yadis
C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Codessentials\Yadis
C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Codessentials\Yadis.exe_[number of characters]

Q) How can I report issues found in the beta version?
A) Please visit the support section and mention the beta version of the product.
