Passwords Back-up

Embird allows you to easily back-up all inserted passwords into a "PASSWORD" file stored either on your hard disk, floppy disk, USB memory key, etc. We strongly recommend that you back-up your passwords regularly to avoid problems caused by re-installation, hard disk failure, or virus attack. If you have a back-up copy of your passwords, it is very easy to insert them back into Embird and thus change the demo (evaluation) version into the full version. 

You can also use the steps explained in this tutorial to transfer the passwords from your desktop computer to your laptop, so it will be fully functional on your second computer. However, please note that you may transfer Embird to another computer only as long as the other computer is owned by you and as long as it is used on only one computer at a time.

Follow these steps to back-up your passwords:

1 - Run Embird and select "Help -> Passwords" menu (Picture No. 1).

Select Help -> Passwords

2 - The "Passwords" dialog box will appear on the screen. It contains two sections: "Back-up passwords" and "Recover passwords" (Picture No. 2).

3 - To back-up your passwords, insert formatted floppy disk into the A: drive and click the "Back-up" button. This will create a "PASSWORD" file on the floppy disk, containing all your passwords.

Note: If you want to back-up your passwords to other disk media, e.g. to USB memory key, choose the drive containing this media in the "Back-up to drive:" box before you click the "Back-up" button.

Tip: To verify that your copy of Embird is registered, run Embird and check the blue bar at the top of Embird Manager window. If you see "Embird Manager - registered to [your name]" text there then you have registered copy (see the blue bar in Picture No. 1 above). To find out which Embird plug-ins are installed and registered on your computer, please select "Help -> Installed Plug-ins" menu in Manager or Editor window.
