Process

Administrators or users can spend significant amount of time and effort while migrating from one operating system to another. To ensure a seamless upgrade with correct system settings, you can use the inSync Persona Backup feature.

To upgrade operating systems using Persona Backup, follow the steps listed below.

Step Description
Step 1 Identify the profiles for group of users selected for OS migration. Modify these profiles to enable System, App Settings.
Step 2 Ensure that all the identified users trigger a backup from their laptops after you enable System, App Settings. If backup from any laptop fails, contact support@druva.com.
Step 3 Install the new OS on user laptops.
Step 4

Ask users to activate the inSync client on their new or upgraded laptop.

Ensure the following,

  • Users did not install the inSync client earlier on their laptop.
  • Users click Restore system settings when they activate the inSync client.
  • Users restart their laptops after they activate the inSync client.
