Restoring Data From a Backup

Restoring Comindware backups is performed from the Comindware.DbRestore.exe command-line utility located in the Comindware installation folder. The default path to the utility is C:/Program Files (x86)/Comindware/Products/Site/bin/.

To restore a Comindware backup:

1. Stop the Comindware Products application pool if Comindware Tracker is installed as an IIS web site, or stop the Comindware Products service if Comindware Tracker is installed as a service.

2. Run the ComindwareDbRestore.exe command-line utility with administrator rights: 

  • Click on the Windows Start button.
  • In the Start Search box, type in “Cmd” (without quotes).
  • Right click on the Command Prompt in the resulting search list.
  • In the right click menu, click on the “Run as Administrator” menu item.
  • Type-in the path to the Comindware.DbRestore.exe command-line utility (with double quotes):

""C:/Program Files (x86)/Comindware/Products/Site/bin/Comindware.DbRestore.exe""

3. Go to the command-line utility and choose an action:

  • To list existing backups, type-in the following command (without the ""< "" and "">"" symbols):

""C:/Program Files (x86)/Comindware/Products/Site/bin/Comindware.DbRestore.exe"" list <path_to_backup_location>""

  • To restore a backup, type-in the command (without the ""< "" and "">"" symbols):

""C:/Program Files (x86)/Comindware/Products/Site/bin/Comindware.DbRestore.exe"" restore <path_to_backup_location> <path_to_target_location>""

4. Start the Comindware Products application pool or the Comindware Products service.
