Presenting Universal Installer in CloudBerry Backup 4.9

Starting from CloudBerry Backup 4.9 all the program editions are installed from one universal installer. You will not get confused in choosing files to download and transition between the editions anymore; the installation itself becomes easier.

This article highlights some changes in the CloudBerry Backup update from older versions and clean installation options.

Update Process

All your settings (plans, accounts, options) on updating from CloudBerry Backup 4.8 or older versions to v4.9 will remain! You won’t see any changes in the update process.

Fresh Installation

For fresh installations, the start screen now looks like this:

Here you can select installation of free Home Edition, trial version, as well as activate a commercial version. You can see the main differences between the editions in this table.


Note: There is a change in destination folder for CloudBerry Backup 4.9. Now there is no indication of edition there. It was done for standardization and users’ convenience.
For Desktop Edition, for example:
x86:

  • Old: C:\Program Files\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Online Backup
  • Now: C:\Program Files\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Backup

x64:

  • Old: C:\Program Files (x86)\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Online Backup
  • Now: C:\Program Files\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Backup

Changes in destination folder will concern only those users who install the program for the first time. After the update, the folder will remain the same - version 4.9 is installed on top of the previous one.


Home Edition

Home Edition is designed for home use only. It is free, but limited in the size of storage, and doesn’t support compression and encryption. To install it, do the following:

  • Select Use Home Edition (free) at the start screen and press Next.
  • Enter your e-mail, press Get registration key and enter the key which you’ll get by e-mail in the bottom field.

Important: this version is not suitable for the corporate environment, even if a ‘home’ version of OS is installed on the workstation. Domain-connected machines are also unsupported.

Trial Version

Installation of 15-day trial version is completed at one step. You need to select the product edition of interest and enter your e-mail.

After you press Start Trial button, the full version of the program will start, and you’ll be able to try all its features with a 15-day trial period. In the next launching, you will be proposed to activate the license or continue using trial.

Activate Commercial Version

You can activate the product at any time - during the trial period or when it is expired. To buy a product license, do the following:

  1. Press Buy online orange button in the installation window, or you can buy the license from our website.
  2. Choose a product edition you want to buy, click Buy

The program will verify the key and activate the acquired edition.

Note: if you want to change the product edition, e.g. you use Server Edition and you want to upgrade to Ultimate, you need to release your Server Edition license in the product and activate an Ultimate Edition license.

If there is no internet connection on this computer, the key won’t be verified. In this case, you can activate the product offline.

What’s next?

Sometimes, it is difficult to take a sound decision, especially, when it is a question of information protection. That’s why we suggest all our users trying CloudBerry Backup for 15 days for free, and appreciate the benefits of cloud backup on their own.
