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
