Requirements
  • The only requirements are that you must have .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.
  • This has been developed purely on x64 systems (Vista and Win7), so I know that x64 is ok, as should x86 as it's still just a 32bit program.
  • If you're running Vista or Win7, to run the program you will require elevated permissions. Unfortunately, this is only required for restoring a backup, but I have yet to find a good way of only asking for elevated permissions when restoring, so for now, you have to run as Administrator for all purposes.
  • If you have any other previous versions of my utility installed, you will need to uninstall that first before installing the new one.

Other Notes
  • I have as best I can made it backward compatible with the previous version. So any backups made with the old one should still be able to be restored using the new program.
  • Unfortunately I have had to remove all the command line parameter options that existed in the previous version, which does mean this can no long be a scheduled task. I will look into changing this back so that it can be, but for now, this functionality has been removed.
  • When restoring, please make sure Writer is closed, especially if you're restoring plugins.
