Updating from Version 7
Since version 7, the software has undergone a major upgrade, and there is no way to transfer or convert tasks between versions (up to version 7.8.2).
In the version 7.8.2 and later, you can migrate tasks automatically. To do it, export all tasks from your version 7, then install the version 8 and import* these tasks to the new version.
Warning! MS SQL and Oracle backup tasks will not convert directly from version 7 to 8, due to changes in basic plug-in configuration!

Recommended way of migrating from version 7 to version 8 is as follows:
* Note that you can import tasks only in a purchased version Handy Backup, not in a free trial version!
