Restoring data using the command line

This method should be used, if it is not possible to log on to the Crypt-o and perform the restore using the GUI method, described above.


Stop the Crypt-o Server service.
Open the command prompt as an Administrator on the server computer and execute the following command:
"C:\Program Files\Crypt-o\server.exe" -a -restore:"<backup_file_name>"
       * Change the path to the server.exe file according to your installation.
       * Replace the <backup_file_name> parameter by a full path to an actual backup file.
Start the Crypt-o Server service to start using the restored database.
