[Versions 1, 2 & 3] How do I move Bird Journal to another computer

Note: This article is for an older version.

First, you need to install Bird Journal onto the new computer.  The easiest way to do this is to reissue your license details using our website.  Then access your email from your new computer.

Click the link in the email to download the software and install it.  Then, run Bird Journal on the new computer and enter your license key, which is also found in the email.

Next, you need to restore your backup.  If you don't have an up-to-date backup on your old computer, you can make one now using Bird Journal.  This is accessed via Options>Maintenance>Backup.

Copy the backup file to external storage, such as a hard disk or USB drive, if you're not already backing up to these.  Plug the external storage into the new computer, and using Bird Journal, restore the backup from the external storage.  This is accessed via Options>Maintenance>Backup.

Once this is done, your new computer is ready to use Bird Journal as normal.
