Restoring from a Backup of a Different User on
Your Device
If you have multiple users set up in Proloquo2Go on
your device, you can restore from the backups of any
user on the device.
Here you see the backups of a copy of Proloquo2Go
that has three users: Fox (the currently running user),
Jennifer, and Lizzie.
If you select a backup from a different user than the
one that is currently active, you’ll be asked what you’d
like to do. You can either overwrite the current user
with the backup from the other user, or you can switch
to the other user and restore it from the selected
backup file.
After
importing the
backup, you can restore
the backup now or later.
Here, a backup from the user
Jennifer has been selected, but
the currently active user is Fox.
