Restoring a Backup

EW has a function to create database backups. These backups are created on the EW server and can be restored at a future time.

To restore an EW backup please follow the following steps:

  1. Make sure nobody is working in EW anywhere in your clinic
  2. copy your new backup file to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.50.EARWORKS\MSSQL\Backup
  3. download the backup tool
  4. expand the archive in a folder, we recommend it to be called C:\ewbackups
  5. run the EW4BackupTool.exe
  6. click Connect
  7. browse to the backup file
  8. enter the ewsa password in the password field (this is the password of the 'ewsa' user in EW). If you have no password for ewsa then leave this field blank.
  9. click Restore
