How to do a ChronoBeans Restore
The restore process allows you to recover your data from accidental deletion, or to migrate your data to a new computer.
To run a restore go to the ChronoBeans Administration screen and select Restore under the Admin menu item. There are a series of checkboxes for each of the types of data you can restore.
- Your application control information.
- Your complete database of clients/project/time/etc.
- Your folder containing generated Invoice and Log .pdf files.
In most recovery/restore situations you would accept the default setting to restore all information. However there may be special circumstances where you only want to restore the database and/or control information. These options are for advanced users, or when directed by ChronoBeans support.
Once checked, click Start to begin the process. You will be directed to select a backup file to restore from. This file could be in the default backup directory, or from a backup device, such as a USB drive.
After the file has been selected it will be checked to ensure it is a ChronoBeans backup, and then your restore process will run as directed. A confirmation message will be displayed and you can then Close the restore function.
