Backup for Windows
Managed Backup Agent
Update Backup Agent using Management Console Downloads tab.
If the latest release has not yet been generated in your portal, please make sure to click the button “Get Sandbox Latest” to do that:
The sandbox build is initially not public, and will not be automatically rolled out to end users. An MSP administrator can test the build on a test environment before making it publicly available for all managed users.
We generally recommend keeping the options “Enable Sandbox” and “Allow Automatic Update” enabled. The former ensures that the updated builds are firstly generated non-publicly before getting approved by an MSP administrator for public rollout, while the latter allows the public build to be installed remotely and automatically across the machines of all managed users:
If automatic updates are not enabled, please use the “Force Update” button on the “Remote Management” page of your MBS web-console for the machines with outdated Backup software builds:
In case this is not possible, download the updated build from the “Downloads” tab and transfer the installation file to the machine that needs to be updated. You can install the update directly on top of the older version, your settings will be preserved.
Please note that the VM Edition of the Backup software uses a separate Backup software build.
In order to check the Backup software edition you are currently using, please navigate to Main Menu -> Help -> About.
For reference, the VM Edition appears like this:
