Installation process

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

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

  • Local Administrator

Administration Panel

Used for defining all jobs and settings of the program.

The program is installed via a typical Windows installation wizard - you need to go through all the steps that include e.g. accepting the License Agreement or selecting an installation path. After the installation is completed, the wizard closes and the program starts automatically. Initially, an optional Quick Tour is displayed which allows you to learn about the main features of the program (Fig. 1.).
