|| If you are restoring your IMSMA data due to a system crash, you will first want to re-install IMSMA and its supporting applications.
|| If you are running IMSMA in a client-server configuration, the following procedures should be performed on the IMSMA server.
To restore IMSMA data:
- Before beginning the restoration process, verify that the IMSMA server, all IMSMA clients and all connections to the server from e.g. Navicat have been shut down.
- If the IMSMA Control Centre icon is not already displayed in the lower, right corner of your Window’s desktop, double-click the IMSMA Tray Launcher icon on your computer’s desktop.
- Right-click the IMSMA Control Centre icon that is displayed in the lower, right corner of your Window’s desktop.
- Select IMSMA Backup and Restore > Restore.
- In the IMSMA Restore window, click the button.
- From the Open window:
- Navigate to the directory from which you would like to restore your IMSMA data.
|| When selecting the directory from which you would like to restore your IMSMA data, be sure to select the directory that is named with the date and time the backup was performed.
- Click the Open button.
- The name of the directory displays in the Select the directory you want to restore from field.
- In the Include the Following section, each item that is available to be restored is checked by default. Uncheck the checkbox () next to each item you do not want to restore.
- Items that are disabled were not backed up to the file you selected to restore and cannot be included. If you do not check any items, only the IMSMA database will be restored.
- Click the Restore button.
