Cobian Backup 10 Installation

1. Download Cobian Backup 10 from CobianSoft, if you haven’t already done so.

2. Run the cbsetup.exe file that you just downloaded by double-clicking on it. Cobian Backup 10 Setup will start, as shown below. Click Next to proceed with Cobian Backup installation.


3. Click the I accept radio button on the license agreement page and click Next.


4. On the next screen, there’s an option about installing the volume shadow copy requester. This will backup even the files that are open. Open files are not backed up otherwise. But to use this volume shadow copy service, you need .Net 3.5 installed. If you don’t have it already, Cobian Backup Setup will inform you on the screen below. If you have it, there won’t be any such message. Click the “Install Volume Shadow Copy requester” checkbox, if it is unchecked and then click Next.


5. On the next screen, you should let the installation type remain as a service. Change the Service Options to use your account username and password. This is useful if you also want to add a backup task to backup your files to an FTP account. If you won’t be using Cobian to backup online, you can let the default setting remain. Click Next.


6. Click the Next button on the following screen to install Cobian Backup.


7. Cobian Backup gives an “Installation completed successfully” message. Click Done to exit setup.


8. Cobian Backup will start and you’ll see the following message pop up near the system tray.

    Hello Bill,

    You need not be a computer geek in order to install or upgrade Cobian Backup. Install the version 10 without un-installing the previous version and it will automatically upgrade the older version files and also will detect and store all your previous version settings.

    So, go ahead and install it. If you have any more queries, feel free to ask here.

    Kind Regards,
    XPDrivers Support
