C:\Program Files\Nucleus Business Backup\

Installing the latest version
The new version of the software can be downloaded via the controlpanel ( or via the website (download page).

The backups you had already made, will ofcourse continue to exist on our backup-cluster. If you start the software, you have the possibility to log in using your username & pasword. After starting the software, the back-up settings are downloaded from our central server, and you will receive the list of backupsets in the Backup Manager.

All your data is stored on a backup-cluster (including your settings). Reinstallingen the software will not cause data-loss.
