Shop Management: How to Restore a Local Database Backup

The following are instructions on how to restore a local database backup (.bak or .zip files) into the Shop Management program for version 6.x or higher. It is highly recommended that a backup is created prior to restoring a local backup as the Database Restore Utility overwrites the existing database.


WARNING:  If you are restoring a database without the assistance of Mitchell1 Tech Support, it is essential that you contact our support team to ensure that all components of the Shop Management program are functioning properly.
