AISBackup F.A.Q.

AIS Backup is asking for a Registration key before the end of the 30 day trial.

If you have uninstalled and re-installed AISBackup you will need to apply for a new key to resume the trial period. 

To replace AISBackup with an updated version, simply re-install the program, the changed files will be replaced.

To move the program from one drive to another, either:

  • Drag the program to it's new location using Windows Explorer, then manually update the shortcuts.
  • Install the program to the new location, do not launch the program after installation, then manually copy AISBackup.lic from the old program folder to the new. Then manually delete the old program folder.
  • De-Install, Re-Install, wait for the program to ask for a new 'registration key' and follow the procedure here. Moving AISBackup this way may take a couple of days and is not recommended.

I want to extend the trial period.

To extend the trial period of AISBackup:

  • Select the menu option 'Registration'
  • Click Re-Trial.
  • Enter your e-mail address, then if using MAPI e-mail system click Send or click Copy To Clipboard then manually paste the e-mail details to your e-mail system.
  • Send this e-mail to AISBackup@aiscl.co.uk
  • Wait for the re-registration key and instructions for applying it. The number of day's allocated for the re-trial is up to the discretion of Aquarius I. S. Consultancy Limited.
