HomeStar EZ InventoryHow do I?Restore the Data Files

5.3. Restore the Data Files

You can run a restore of the data files at anytime as long as there is no one using the program (if using the Network Edition). You will restore from the zip file that was created when you performed the Backup as in the previous chapter. Our example restores from the C:\ drive. To perform this operation just follow the steps below.

There are two ways to arrive at the Backup/Restore Utility.

First, run the program. Click File, Backup/Restore Data, then click Restore Data.

OR, click the Windows Start Button, All Programs, Star EZ Inventory, Utilities, Data Backup-Restore Utility.

This will run the Backup/Restore Utility.

You will find the field with the heading - Name and location of archive file. You would then select the location of the zip file you want to restore/save.

Click on the folder to the far right to select a location of your backed up zip files.

This will display the folder selection screen.

In our example, our zip files are under the C drive. After you select the file, click on the save button.

This will take you back to the main screen of the backup utility.

When you get back to this screen, click on the Restore Button to restore the data files.

You will be presented with the following dialog screen. Click Yes To All to overwrite.

This should be your results

This completes the Data Restore Routine
