NEW IMPROVEMENTS IN THE WOW! SOFTWARE: AUTOMATIC BACKUP PROCESS

To ensure the continuous use and security of the data, we have built an automatic backup process into the software. Before the new update is installed, a backup of the complete WOW! Software is created, which is the basis for a recovery in case of failure are available.

 

The entire process is time-optimized so as not to lengthen the update process unnecessarily. If you cancel the process for your own reasons or if there is not enough space available (minimum 10GB necessary), appropriate dialogs are displayed. The process can be aborted or continued at any time.

 

The already received update is only installed after the successful creation of the backup. In this way, recovery of the previous version is ensured in the event of an error so that you remain able to work.

 

WOW! Software Recovery

To start the backup process, in the Windows start menu, in the WOW! Software folder we have built a new entry. By clicking on "WOW! Software Recovery" the process starts automatically.
