Restore a Set of Books

Parent Previous Next

This option will restore your data for a specific Set of Books or your hard drive or in a valid folder on your system. This option uses the Pkzip to uncompress or unzip the size of files contained in the backup file. To Restore a Set of Books from a Backup, a valid Backup (tcBackup.exe or file must exist.

If your data becomes corrupt for some reason, restoring from backup will fix this. It will be necessary to re-enter all the data from the date of the last backup to the present. It can be seen that backing up often is a good habit that can potentially save a lot of work. If you do not make regular backups, you may have to re-enter thousands of transactions and general ledger, debtor, creditor and stock information.

It is also important to keep record of your backup disks or files or to label your backup disks to prevent restoring a Set of Books from an incorrect backup disk or file.

It is recommended that you keep a record of which data is backed up and which is not, to prevent re-entering data that is already on your backup disks.
