Backing up BandBro'

 

To access the BandBro' backup module, select Utilities-->Backup Bandbro' from the main menu.

 

This simple routine will backup C;\Bandbro to a drive location of your choice. When a backup is generated, the Bandbro folder (which contains all of your song and set data) is copied to the root drive designated in the 'Drive' drop down list.  Use a second internal, external or thumb drive. Avoid using a rewritable CD. 

 

Do not  be concerned about backing up the program files. These static files are easily restored by downloading and installing the trial version.

Network Backup

The Bandbro' backup supports only drives that are connected directly to the host computer. Network access is not supported. If you wish to manually backup up to network location, simply copy the C:\Bandbro folder to the clipboard and paste it into a network drive using a Windows file browser. In this situation, always select "Replace all" if prompted to overwrite a prior backup. Do not cherry-pick the copy files.
