O&O FileBackup 
Licensing and registration

Information about licensing

In order to activate the product after starting or to gain access to the Full Version at a later time, you must possess a valid license key. This license key is also called a registration code, serial number, or product ID.

O&O FileBackup needs to be licensed per computer; in other words, you have to purchase a license for each computer where you want to employ O&O FileBackup.

If you do not enter a valid license key, you will only be able to use O&O FileBackup as a trial version.

Enter license

  1. The registration wizard allows for a simple registration process.
  2. When you select the option Enter license code, a dialog box will appear where you can enter the registration code you received when purchasing the software.
  3. Please make sure that you do not confuse the digit “1” with “I” or enter any empty spaces where they don’t belong.
  4. Press Ok to save the registration data or Cancel to leave the dialog window without saving the data.
  5. When you have correctly entered the license code you will receive a confirmation in the dialog window.

If you encounter problems while entering your license key, please contact our Support: support@oo-software.com

If you do not enter a valid license key, you will only be able to use O&O FileBackup 30 days as a trial version.
