Backup & Sharing > Backing Up Files
I have a Windows computer with multiple profiles. What steps do I need to take to backup each profile using Frontier Backup & Sharing?
If you have multiple user profiles on your computer, you will need to backup each one individually. You can backup up to 3 user profiles using 1 valid Frontier Backup & Sharing subscription key.
To do this, you will need to install Frontier Backup & Sharing on the 1st profile. Instructions for that can be found here.
Once you have completed the installation, you will need to log out of the current user profile and log in to the profile you wish to backup next.
After you have logged into the new user profile, you should see the Frontier Backup & Sharing icon on your desktop. Double-click it to open the program. You can also access the program through the start menu.
Type in the same Subscription Key you already used. Click Continue.
Select Back up files.
Choose Yes I have. I want to login with my username. Then, click Next.
Login with the same email address and password you used when you created your first backup.
Select I want to create a new Backup. Click Next.
Choose a name for the backup you wish to create. Click Next.
Select the files you wish to backup. Click Next.
Select the amount of time you want to keep deleted files on your backup. Click Next.
Click Start to begin the backup process.
You can perform these steps for up to 3 user profiles.
