• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have a question regarding the above software. I need to have my computer worked on, basically starting from scratch, new operating system and all. My issue is that i have both the ARC-500 and ARC-433 software that i purchased as a download rather than order the disc. Is there a way that i can back these programs up to a disc, or will i be stuck purchasing them again after the computer overhaul?

All you need to save is the licenses keys, which I'm sure you already have put away someplace safe. Just re-download the software from Butel's website, install fresh copies, then enter the license keys like you did the first time around.

Oh and of course remember to backup your .rsf data files.

You could back up your program files to a cloud based disk, like Dropbox.

That way when you redownload the software you van can easily get your program files back.
