This document explains how to download, install or upgrade, and configure the Bucky Backup client for Windows in a step by step process. The client allows you to connect to the Bucky Backup Enterprise, Lite, and Archive Services.
In 2017, IBM changed the name of the software we use for backups from Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) to IBM Spectrum Protect. The change is mostly cosmetic. If you have been using Bucky Backup for a while you may notice that some things are different, like the program group name in the Windows Start Menu, but most of the underlying software is the same. For example, the install location and registry keys are the same as before, and the executables have the same names.
This KB article provides direct links to client downloads, however, they may not always link to the latest clients. You can find information on the absolute latest client releases and fix packs from IBM here (look under the client section):

Installing and upgrading are the exact same procedure. After an upgrade you shouldn't need to re-configure your client if it was working fine to begin with, but there are newer recommended settings, so it might be worth checking your current settings. If you're upgrading to a newer major version (for example: 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206) it's recommended but not required to uninstall the old client first.
