Catalog Backup/Restore Wizard
Partial Transferring of Data for Sharing Workload

The wizard is meant for both full catalog backup / restore in case of a failure or for moving data between PCs and for partial transfer of selected groups of products for sharing workload among your employees. Please follow the wizard's instructions.
To launch the wizard, use the menu Service - Backup/Restore Wizard.

All of the wizard's steps are thoroughly documented and described along the course of the work. In this article, we are going to cover a few moments.
The full catalog backup means that restoring from such archive ALL data will be reset to the original state at the time of the backup. Please note that adding "Technical data" to backup means including data not directly related to the contents of the catalog to the backup file. That includes: printable document templates (/reports), folder with appearance resources (/res), and folder with miscellaneous documents (/bonus).

Partial backup/restore (of a group of products) does not affect catalog's general settings and affects only data inside the selected group. That includes: product list itself, group name, icon, group splash and, whenever necessary, photographs bound to the group, descriptions, and flash files. Such approach makes it possible to share/receive data from employees, not worrying about the safety of the catalog in whole.

When restoring a group, you will be given a warning if the same data file already exists in your folder. Such event may occur when two different groups of products on different computers were created from the main installation of the application. To resolve such conflict, simply rename the data file on one of the computers (preferably, NOT on the one where you are assembling the full catalog). That can be done in the group properties window; menu: Service - Group Properties Wizard, see the figure.

Further on, you can ignore the conflict warnings if you are positive about the uniqueness of the received data.
