You can use the ACD Database Restore Wizard to restore previously backed up database information. If you saved your backup to disc, and the backup spanned multiple discs, you can restore from any disc in the sequence. This can be particularly useful if a disc is lost or damaged but you would like to recover the remaining information.
To restore database information:
- In Manage mode, click Tools | Database | Restore Database.
- On the Welcome page, click Next to select the backup.
- On the Restore Options page, select the backup and date from which you want to restore, or browse to the location of your backup and select a .bkup file.
- If you are restoring from a disc, and the backup spanned multiple discs, it is recommended that you select the last disc in the sequence. Click Next when you are ready to restore your database.
When restoring a backup from a series of discs or backup files, ACDSee 12 will only restore the information included in and prior to the selected disc or backup file. Therefore, unless required, it is recommended that you select the last disc or file in the backup sequence.
