Good Afternoon all,

How do I backup all of my files (categories/playlists/etc.) to un-install LR on an older PC/laptop and re-install on a new PC/laptop, please?

Thanks!

Hi Ayesha, you can use the backup function in LR (Tools > Backup/Restore Data).

In the Backup Data screen, make sure you select "Database +Media Library" and check the "With Fonts" box to ensure that your backup file will include not just the words/sentences, but all the media files you've added.

Once the backup process is done, copy the backup file (*.lrb) onto your USB or external hard drive to transfer it to your new computer. Once LR is installed and the backup file is transferred to your new computer, double-click on the backup file to restore your lessons.

For detailed instructions, please see: http://support.brillkids.com/hc/en-us/articles/204596154-How-to-Back-up-your-Entire-Little-Reader-Library-

I suggest you reinstall LR and restore your backup in the new computer first before you proceed with uninstalling LR from your old computer (or before you reformat it). smile

Hi there!

Thank you.  I am uninstalling on a very old laptop - and LR will not even open to follow the directions you mentioned.  Should I just do a manual backup (copy file folders and paste into a safe drive) for both the program files and program data for BrillKids?  Or . . .  ?  I already have BK-LR on two laptops, and cannot install on a 3rd, hence, I wanted to back it up on the oldest laptop and un-install, so I can install on a newer laptop.

Hi Ayesha, since you can't open LR, you can save your LR's Application Data or ProgramData folder instead as your backup.

1. Open Computer (or My Computer) and go to:

For Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BrillKids
For Windows Vista, 7 or 8: C:\ProgramData\BrillKids

**Note that the Application Data or ProgramData folder is hidden by default. If you cannot find that folder, follow the steps here to show hidden files and folders:
For XP: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/display-hidden-folders-in-xp/
For Vista, 7 or 8: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/show-hidden-files-and-folders-in-windows-vista/

2. Select the entire "Little Reader" folder and copy it to your USB or external hard drive. Make sure all the subfolders inside it are also included when you copy it to your USB or external hard drive (e.g., "Data," "Fonts," "Media Library," etc.)

3. Download and install Little Reader in your new computer, and once it's installed, close it. Transfer the "Little Reader" folder that you have backed up from the old computer into the corresponding Application Data or Program Data folder in your new computer.

4. Open LR and check if your backed up lessons are complete. Make sure to reactivate your license key(s) for your BrillKids curricula too.

Hi there!  Hmm - I just copied the entire Brillkids folders from both:  Program (x86) and ProgramData.

Now do I just un-insall BK on the old/dying laptop, so I can install it and unlock it on the new one?  And it is also installed on another laptop we have.  My understanding is I can only have the software on 2 laptops/computer at a time - so I want to uninstall it on the old/dying one before proceeding.  Is that correct?  

EDIT (10/25/15 PM) > I followed the directions and do not see my lessons that I created?  Do they appear after unlocking LR?

Hi Ayesha,

You just need to delete the activation record for your old laptop to free up a slot for your new laptop. That way you will be able to reactivate your newly-installed LR in your new laptop.

Please clarify if you already transferred the Little Reader "ProgramData" folder into the corresponding "ProgramData" folder in your new computer. You actually don't need to copy the "Program (x86)" folder from your old computer - the lesson data and media files are only stored in the "ProgramData" folder.

If you've already copied the "ProgramData" folder, yes, please activate your LR key in your new computer. After that, check if your personal lessons are now displayed in the Play & Edit screen and/or Play Courses screen (if you already made some personal courses).

Hi Kezia!

You are the best!   love   Thank you for the clarification.  I was able to access my categories and playlists on the new laptop.   clap

Alright - now onto a new project! 

Thanks again!

To do that you need to learn how to migrate your data at https://spinbackup.com/blog/how-to-migrate-g-suite-data/. Don't be afraid. It is easy to do. After that, you will have no problems with accessing your data on your second PC. Be sure to read so carefully, so you won't lose any data during the process.
