If you need to move your Cashbook data from one computer to another (e.g. from an old computer to a new computer, or from an old treasurer to a new treasurer, etc.), you can backup then restore your data onto another computer, as follows:-
- Click “File” then “Backup Cashbook Data” to make a backup of your data on your current computer (we recommend using a USB flash drive or external hard drive)
- Download and install the software onto the new computer
- Connect your backup device to the new computer and start Cashbook Complete
- Choose “Restore” (if prompted), otherwise choose “Restore From Backup” from the “File” menu – and browse to your backup device to select/open the Cashbook file you want to restore
Restoring from a backup in this way means that both your data and registration are reinstated to the new computer you’re working on, so there is no need for unlock codes.
If you’re restoring a registered file, then it will remain registered on the new machine. If you’re restoring an unregistered file (on a trial basis), then it will continue to remain on a trial on the new machine.
Please don’t start a new Cashbook file from scratch after re-installing the software on the new computer. You must restore your data from a backup as outlined above in order to preserve your registration. Starting a new Cashbook file means the new one needs to be registered (purchased) separately to your original one.
