HRcalendar - Back Up and Restore

Backing up the data:

--NOTE-- You have two ways of backing up the data and one way to restore data.

  • To backup data from within the program click File > Backup. You will be notified when the backup is complete.
  • To backup data when you can’t open the program go to the server’s desktop and click Start > All Programs > HRcalendar > Backup/Restore and click Backup. You will be notified when the backup is complete. (This only applies to HRcalendar Enterprise)

To find the backup you've just made, navigate to c:\Program Files\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup Or C:\Program Files (x86)\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup (Windows 7).

The backup will be assigned a date and time stamp and the extension “.bak”.

EXAMPLE: ABSDATA01-01-2013-1626.bak

Restoring Data from a previous backup:

--NOTE-- To protect your current data we recommend that you perform a back up first because when you restore, you will completely replace all current data with the data being restored.  See back up instructions above.

--IMPORTANT!-- Backups must reside in the local Data Backup folder to be restored.

Copy the backup file on the new computer to: c:\Program Files\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup Or C:\Program Files (x86)\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup (Windows 7)

  1. From within HR Calendar click on File > Restore to get a pop-up window listing all of the backups in your Backup folder.
  2. Select the appropriate backup and click Open.
  3. Reopen HRcalendar to view the restored data.

Path to the database:

C:\Program Files \ Microsoft SQL Server \ MSSQL.1\ MSSQL \ Data

The two files that constitute the database are:

  • Hrcalendar.mdf
  • Hrcalendar_Log.LDF

--IMPORTANT!-- Moving the software to a new computer? Using Windows 7? Read this article first!
