How to Backup Your Filmora Software before Upgrading to a Newer Version
One of the dangers connected to major software upgrades is the possibility of losing settings, files or other assets you have built up over time with the earlier version.
This is not generally a problem with minor updates and the way you can tell you need to pay a little more attention is by the numbering of the update itself.
The first number of the software will be the current version then there will be additional numbers added to the end to indicate updates to that version.
For example Filmora has been at version 11 for a while now and started with version 11.0.
After that there have been various updates and bug fixes so that currently we are at version 11.7.13.
Throughout these updates the 11 has remained consistent.
These have all been fine and losing existing assets etc. has not been a problem.
However at the end of the year Filmora will be updating again and this time it is going to be major because we are going to version 12.
These are the ones we need to pay extra attention to and take steps to make sure nothing goes wrong.
There are a number of backup strategies you can find on the internet for situations like this but there is another alternative you may want to try.
What you can do is choose to update your software but instead of installing it on the drive where your existing copy lives, install on another drive so you can run two versions at once until you are sure everything is running fine.

Don’t Want To Get Hacked? Try This Proven Password Method
I am glad Kevin re-posted this password method because at the time he was hacked last year he mentioned it then it got lost in the mists of time.
I use a password manger myself but that’s because I hold a huge number of passwords to many, many sites on behalf of clients and I am just too lazy to fill them out!
For personal use this method works great.
