Restore Set of Books
This option wil restore your data for a specific Set of Books to your hard drive or in a valid folder on your system.
This option uses Pkzip to uncompress or "unzip" the files contained in the backup file. To Restore a Set of Books
from a Backup, a valid Backup (tcBackup.exe) file must exist.
It may happen that your data, for some reason, becomes corrupt. Using the restore facility al ows you to restore
the data from a previous backup which may correct any possible errors. You may have to re-enter your data since
the last backup up until your last transaction before it became corrupted. It is recommended that you keep a
record of which data is backed up (and which is not) to prevent re-entering data that is already on your backup
disks. In the event of a corrupted Set of Books, the amount of data to be re-entered, depends on the quantity of
the data that has been entered since your last backup.
The very same backup disks or backup files on your hard drive are used to restore your data into the Set of
Books. If you do not make regular backups, you may have to re-enter thousands of transactions and general
ledger, debtor, creditor and stock information. It is also important to keep a record of your backup disks or files, or
to label your backup disks, to prevent restoring a Set of Books from an incorrect or older backup disk or file.
