Restore projects from backup (wizard)
You can create backup copies of your local projects, along with all resources registered in them.
Using the Restore projects from backup wizard, you can restore local projects and local resources from memoQ backup files (.mqbkf files).
In the Manage projects dialog, or on the Dashboard, click Restore from backup below the list of projects.
In the Restore projects from backup wizard, you can control how the local projects and their resources are restored from the backup files.
Important: You cannot restore backup files that were created in another (earlier or later) version of memoQ. If you want to restore a package that was made in a different version, install that version first, then restore the backup package.
Important: The backup/restore mechanism of memoQ copies the internal (binary) form of the project and resource files in the backup package. When you restore a backup package, all affected project files and resource files are overwritten. memoQ does not look at the contents of the files when restoring the files.
Occasionally, you can lose recent work by restoring a backup file. Do not restore projects from a backup file unless
|·||the project was damaged on your computer, and you cannot access its contents, or|
|·||you are absolutely certain that the copy you are restoring is newer from the version on your computer (this is possible if the backup file was created on another computer).|
Step 1: Select the backup package to restore
In the Package to restore text box, type the path and the name of the backup package you want to restore. Alternatively, you can click the button, and browse your computer for the backup package.
Note: memoQ backup package files have the .mqbkf extension.
After selecting the backup package, click Next. Click Cancel to leave the wizard without restoring data.
Step 2: From the backup package, choose individual projects to restore
As a second step, memoQ analyzes the backup file, and retrieves a list of projects inside the package. Then you can choose from the following actions:
In the upper half of the wizard page, you can choose where to create any new projects during the restore.
Note: If you do not choose to add any new projects, memoQ will not use the radio button settings in the upper half of this wizard page.
In the lower half of the wizard page, memoQ lists the projects it found in the backup file. Each project has a check box and an action indicator.
To proceed with the restore, click Next. Click Back to specify another backup file. Click Cancel to leave the wizard without restoring data.
Step 3: Ready to restore
In the last wizard page, memoQ asks you to confirm the restore operation. Note that all project and resource files will be overwritten. Occasionally, you can lose recent work with this. Do not restore projects from a backup file unless
To proceed with the restore, click Finish. Click Back to change the restore settings, or specify another backup file. Click Cancel to leave the wizard without restoring data.
