Restoring a Database from Backup

Restoring a Database from a Backup Copy

The database file can be restored only if there's no server currently working with the file.

Database restoration may be done manually, by moving the backup copy to the folder containing the original database file and renaming it as wb8.fil. If the backup copy is split into more parts, you have to do it for each part.

The restoration can be done more easily from the Control Panel. Choose the appropriate server, don't connect to it. Select the Database management action and choose the backup in the Management tab. Then press the Restore now! button. You can restore only the backup copies with standard naming convention in this way.
