How to Move Backup Logs

BackupChain’s task settings are stored in:


Logs are stored in

C:\ProgramData\BackupChainService\Logs\<task name>


You can back up these folders as necessary.

How to Move Backup Settings to Another Server

In order to move the settings to another server or PC, take a copy of BackupSets.xml. On the target PC, exit the BackupChain Monitor application. Then, in the Windows Service Manager, turn off “BackupChain Service”

Copy over and replace the BackupSets.xml file to C:\ProgramData\BackupChainService and turn the service back on. After that it’s safe to open the BackupChain Monitor again and all the settings should have been migrated correctly at that point.
