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.


How to Restore a Local Database Backup

  1. Create a local copy of the current database. For instructions on how to create a local backup, see this article.

  2. Close the Shop Management program on workstations.

  3. On the host computer, navigate to the C:\Program Files (x86)\M1-SK\Teamworks\ folder. Double-click on the DatabaseRestoreUtility application. For 32-bit Windows Operating systems, the DatabaseRestoreUtility can be found at C:\Program Files\M1-SK\Teamworks\.

  4. Select, Restore Database.


  5. Navigate to the desired backup (.bak or .zip). Select the backup, then click Open.

  6. Next, read though the warning prompt. Click Yes to continue.


  7. Read through the second warning prompt. Click Yes to continue.


    Note:  The restore process may take up to 30 minutes depending on the size of the database and speed of the computer.


  8. The database restore process is now complete. At this point, the Shop Management program can now be launched.
