Installation process

CodeTwo Backup comprises two components installed together by the installation wizard: the Backup Service and the Administration Panel. The setup of the program needs to be run under the Local Administrator's account on any machine that meets the installation requirements. This machine must be also turned on at all times. Otherwise, no backups will be created. Make sure also that the machine you install the program on has a stable and uninterrupted high-speed connection to the Internet.

The table below briefly describes two components of the program and the installation rights required:

The setup of the program is a typical windows type installation where you manually go through the basic steps such as accepting the License Agreement or selecting the installation path. After the installation is completed, the wizard closes and the program starts automatically along the Quick Tour slides displaying the main features of the program (Fig. 1.).
