Backup file issue

Backup file issue

Backup file issue

Have an older legend at a client's site.
Saved to the spm program a few months ago on my computer just in case.
Just in case has happened, but the file is now an MPM file and the Winspm program does not recognize the file.
Am I out of luck, is there a fix, or did I do an oopsie?

Thank you for any assistance.

RE: Backup file issue

I don't remember the file format for a Legend backup, but I do know it has to be the same release in order to restore the configuration to a new processor. If not, you need to do a convert to get it to the same release and then restore it.

RE: Backup file issue

by any chance,
if auto backup to pcm card was in use, you should have two usable restore files.
software versions of replacement processors must match the backup file.
