Before updating Review Assistant we strongly recommend you to manually create a backup of your database and move it to your backup location before starting the installation process.
Upon updating Review Assistant to a newer version, a backup file of the Review Assistant database is automatically created in a default installation folder. However, to prevent data loss, we recommend you to move the backup file to you own backup location.
To create a backup of your database, please proceed as follows:
Stop the Review Assistant server using the following command:
net stop “Devart Review Assistant”
Copy a server database file and move it to your backup location using the following command:
copy “%ProgramData%\Devart\Review Assistant\reviewassistant.db.bak”
Reboot the Review Assistant server using the following command:
net start “Devart Review Assistant”
Note: You can combine the above commands in a batch file and run it on schedule to ensure regular data backup.
