Updating configuration file

You can update the Backup Manager configuration file in the following way:

  1. Open the Backup Manager installation folder
  2. Find the config.ini file inside (see the table below for the exact file path on each operating system) and open as an Administrator
  3. Edit the settings as needed, save the changes and close the file
  4. Restart the internal backup process associated with Backup Manager (instructions). This is necessary to apply the new settings
