For the cases like you have mentioned, I always recommend you to install the latest version of Vembu BDR Server on a new machine and configure the backups. After the retention period, you can uninstall the Vembu BDR Server and delete the backup data.

If you are planning to install the latest version of Vembu BDR Server on the same machine, proceed with the following steps.

  1. As you are currently using Vembu BDR Server v3.5(installed with MySQL & MongoDB), I suggest you uninstall the Vembu BDR Server leaving the MySQL & MongoDB untouched.

  2. After uninstalling the Vembu BDR Server, stop the MySQL & MongoDB from services.msc and disable autostart for both.

  3. After uninstalling Vembu BDR Server, your sgstorage folder containing the backup data will be renamed with a timestamp appending to it. Make sure you are not deleting any of the files and folder from the sgstorage folder.

  4. Install the latest version of Vembu BDR Server by downloading the setup from here and configure backups for your environment.

If anything goes wrong in the next 14 days, you can restore the data from the older backup data. If everything is smooth, you can delete the older backup data and uninstall the MySQL & MongoDB after 14 days.
