Improved: The update process, the update wizard will automatically backup important files like FileVista.config and FileVista.vdb5 before starting an update. The backed up files will be zipped as "backup-X.X.X.zip" in "App_Data\Backup"" folder. This will make it easier to roll back your original configuration if something goes wrong while updating the database. In the past, you needed to backup these files manually before starting the update just in case.
After Version 7.9.0 - April 24, 2017: There is the "About Dialog" which shows useful information about the product such as exact version. "About Dialog" can be accessed with the new “About…” button on the toolbar of Administration page.

You can update an existing installation of FileVista to the latest version without losing your settings (e.g. license key) and data (e.g. users, groups, events and root folder definitions). The update wizard will automatically update your database structure for the target version.
