Back up settings file for disaster recovery

There are times when you need to retire your server, and CloudBacko needs to be re-installed to a new machine. It is also possible that the machine that have CloudBacko installed has failed, and you need to restore windows systems and files from a remote backup for disaster recovery. You need to first install a new copy of CloudBacko in the new machine. However, without the settings file from the original CloudBacko instance, remote cloud backup cannot be accessed.

If you need to re-install CloudBacko and restore CloudBacko to the original state, the key is to have a backup copy of the settings file. This article shows you how to import and export the settings file.
