Readerware Restore Wizard
Readerware allows you to easily backup your database to a compressed ZIP
file. The backup file will contain all your data, images and preferences. You can then
save this file in a safe place.
Should disaster strike, The Readerware Restore Wizard will guide you
through the simple process of restoring your database.
Backup File Selection
You need to tell Readerware the name of the backup file you wish to restore
from and where it is located. Click on the Browse button and select the file from
the standard file selection dialog.
A Readerware backup file contains both your database and your Readerware preferences.
Normally you would restore your database only, but if you are restoring to a new system
or your hard drive failed, you should restore your preferences too.
Preferences include your Readerware settings, licenses etc.
Normally the default database size of 2GB is plenty. If you do exceed the
maximum size you will get an exception when you add new records to your database.
This exception will state that the data file size limit has been reached . If you
receive this error, check the Maximum size option. The restored database will then support
up to 8GB of data.
You need to tell Readerware where to create the restored the database.
Click on the Browse
button and select the file from the standard file selection dialog.
The new database name must not already exist, Readerware does not allow
you to overwrite an existing database.
Next up is the verification page. This is your last chance to change your
settings prior to running the restore. A quick summary of your
choices is listed. Click on Next if you are ready to go.
