And of course that you have previously already backup up the data to a zip file. The program will restore the zip file of all your data files. To perform this operation just follow the steps below.
1. From the Windows Start menu, under All Programs, Star Bill of Lading, Utilities, Backup/Restore Data Files Utility.
If running from the program, click on the File, then Backup/Restore Data, then Restore Previously Saved Data from Archives.
This will run the Backup.Restore Utility.
You would then select the location of the already backed up zip file you want to restore.
Click on the folder to select the location of the previously saved backup.
This will display the folder selection screen.
After you select the file you want to restore, just click the save button.
This will take you back to the main screen of the backup utility.
