Hi,

On the old PC you can create a backup with the FBackup configurations (including backup jobs and schedulers).
To do that, follow these steps:
1. Open FBackup.
2. Go to File->New
3. Select a backup destination and press Next.
4. On sources page, select "FBackup configurations" under Applications and press Next
5. On the last step, enter the name for that backup job.
6. Press Save->Save and run.


To restore the backup jobs on the new PC you have multiple possibilities.
A. Restore the FBackup configurations.
1. Install FBackup.
2. Go to File->Open.
3. Select the .fkc catalog file from the backup destination and open it in FBackup.
4. Press Restore. All backup jobs will be restored.

B. Manually open the backup jobs from destination.
1. Install FBackup.
2. Go to File->Open.
3. Select all .fkc catalog files from the backup destination.
4. That will bring all jobs in FBackup.
