How to uninstall CodeTwo Backup

Removing CodeTwo Backup is as easy as uninstalling it from the Windows Control Panel:

  1. Go to your Windows Control Panel.
  2. Click on Programs and Features (or Add or Remove Programs in older Windows version).
  3. Find CodeTwo Backup on the list, right mouse click on it and choose Uninstall.
  4. Follow the uninstaller wizard instructions if any are displayed.

Info

If for some reason it is not possible to uninstall the software this way, follow the steps from our Knowledge Base article on How to uninstall a CodeTwo product if it is not possible from the Control Panel.

How to completely remove all installation files

Be aware, that despite following the procedure above, some CodeTwo Backup files will remain on your drive. Those are some settings, configuration, cache and log files located in the below listed folders. Feel free to manually delete them if you are required to uninstall the software completely. However, we strongly recommend to reconsider such decision and to keep those files intact in their original locations, in the case you ever want to install CodeTwo Backup again.

Warning

It will not be possible to restore your original settings without those files in the future.

To proceed with complete removal, after uninstalling the program from Windows Control Panel, manually delete folders and files from the below listed paths:

%AppData%\CodeTwo\CodeTwo Backup
%LocalAppData%\CodeTwo
%LocalAppData%\CodeTwo Backup
%ProgramData%\CodeTwo Backup

User-created Storages are not getting removed during the uninstallation process, so if you are not planning on keeping your Backup Storages you can manually delete them as well.

In the case of any problems you can contact CodeTwo Customer Support.
