Device ID in SQL Backup Pro

Is there any way to find out what's the device ID (XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX) mapped to the actual SQL instance?

    Hi @HVo

    To find the device ID you will need to go to:
    C:\ProgramData\Red Gate\Licenses
    There you should see a SQL Backup license file. Open that file and you'll see the Machine hash which corresponds to the entries in the portal under the usage tab.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks, Kurt. That works for me. A small suggestion: maybe show the device hash value in the GUI to make it easier to add/remove licenses.
