How to restore a database in Hub Manager®.

Restore Database

The Database Restore option lets you restore from a specific backup of a Hub Manager® Professional database.

WARNING: The Restore procedure will erase any data currently in the Hub Manager® Professional database.

  1. Select Tools > Database Backup/Restore from the Hub Manager® Professional main menu to access the Database Backup/Restore option. The Database Backup/Restore screen displays.
  2. Browse to the folder that contains the backup of the database you want to restore from. If you have created multiple backups, then you may need to scroll to the folder that has the date/time stamp of the day you created the backup, in the following format: Year, Month, Day, Hour, Minute, Second (sometimes noted as YYYY-MM-DD-HH-NN-SS). The folder with the most current date/time stamp is located at the bottom since that is how Microsoft Windows numerically sorts file and folder names.
  3. Double-click the backup you want so the folder icon to the left shows open. Select the Restore button to begin the restore procedure from the selected folder. *** Note: It may be necessary to move the backup file to the computer instead of trying to restore it on an external device.
NOTE: When performing a Backup in HMP 8.1 the system will automatically create a OrigDB file, which will be stored in the Backup folder. When performing a Restore please make sure you are selecting the Backup_YYYY-MM-DD-HH-NN-SS.
