Restoring a Back Up
If your database ever becomes corrupted (or is deleted) you will need to restore a backup copy of your database.
To restore a backed up database:
- Select the File page, then click Restore from Backup.
- RootsMagic will begin searching for backups on your computer. You can select from one of the backups found, or click Browse for File to select the backup manually.
- Select the folder you want to restore the backup into, or click Browse for Destination to manually select a folder.
- Click the Save button to begin the restore.
Note: If RootsMagic encounters an open database with data already populated, you will get a message to close the database first.
