Updates / Upgrades

PA File Sight can be upgraded by simply installing the latest version on top of your existing installation. Your settings and databases will be upgraded as needed.

You might need to reset the PA File Sight service's Run As account (from Settings or the Windows Services applet), but other than that no further configuration changes will be needed.

The updates look awesome ...! Keep up the good work and thanks! The new reporting tools are GREAT!
