Restore a CMS Backup

Before restoring your backup, please do the following.
  1. Backup your data (File>Backup).
  2. Go to Help>About Chabad Management System and write down the location of your current data file
  3. Go to Tools>Options>'File Locations' tab and see (towards the bottom), where your backups are being created.

Now close CMS. Open the folder where your current data file is located (#2 above). Rename your current data file to CMS.old. Go to your backup folders (#3 above), and copy your latest backup (you can copy by right-clicking the file and choosing copy). Go back to the current data file location (#2) and click Edit>Paste (or right-click and select paste). Now reopen CMS - CMS has now been reverted to the backed up data.

Important: Entering data while linked to a non current data file, may result in lost data that cannot be recovered. We cannot take any responsibility for lost information. If you are unclear with the instruction here, please contact technical support BEFORE making any changes.
