3. Don’t have a backup…Renew the subscription.
Lesson learned…MAKE A BACKUP!
Watch this video to learn how easy it is to backup the MaxiSys software…
To summarize, copy and paste the SCAN folder from the Autel tablet to a flash drive (thumb drive, SD card, etc…) that is 32GB. WARNING: The Autel devices will not recognize a flash drive larger than 32GB.
Q: The video recommends a 32GB flash drive, can a larger one be used?
A: No. The Autel tablets will not recognize a flash drive larger than 32GB.
Q: How do I restore the files from a backup?
A: Copy the SCAN folder from the backup flash drive to the tablet.
Q: Can the backup be used to restore the Autel tablet after the subscription has expired?
Q: Can I “lend” my backup to a friend?
A: No. The backups are tied to the serial number.
Q: When should I make a backup?
A: Make at least one backup before your current subscription expires. Ideally, make at least two backups:
– one to use
– another one to use in case the first one does not work.
Don’t forget, renewing your subscription gets you the latest updates and a revived warranty.
Finally, if you don’t have a current subscription and don’t have a backup, consider a new unit.
