Supported E-Reader devices


For downloads see the release pages.



Requires Windows 8/10/11 (64-bit). Windows 7 (64-bit) will likely also work.


Two Debian versions exist: a standard version and a compatible version for older Buster-based distros. Aside from the dependencies, the latter omits the ability to cancel running backups. Distinguish either version using their Qt dependency (open Help > About, 5.15+ is the standard version).

The Fedora binary is build using Fedora Workstation 35, and should be useable on compatible systems with at least glibc 2.34. If the .rpm does not add the required dependencies, you will need to manually install libzip and qt5-qtbase.

! Note: the device monitor has not yet been implemented for Linux.

Windows and Linux differences

The USB implementations differ, but this is mostly a technical aspect. The Linux version generally appears to run faster: Window's API function for device names can stall at times; Qt's row resizing was excruciatingly slow on Windows, but has been replaced by smart-row-resizing. That has it's own caveats: the intention is to allow either, at least in the Linux version.


You are encouraged to donate, if you are able to do so.
