Backup & Restore (ResourceBlender Express)
ResourceBlender Express allows you to backup and restore the whole database to XML format.
To backup the database, click File->Export->XML Backup from ResourceBlender Express or Backup and Restore from ResourceBlender for ASP.NET. Individual parts can be excluded from the backup if desired by unchecking the boxes.
Restoring a Backup
Click File->Import->XML Backup from ResourceBlender Express or Backup and Restore from ResourceBlender for ASP.NET. If Clear database before restoring is checked, all components which are checked and also included in the backup file being restored will be deleted before the file is restored. Items will only be deleted during a backup if the component type is checked and the backup file contains components of that type.
It is strongly recommended you backup the database before upgrading to a new version, then restore when the new version is installed. The translation database should also be exported periodically in case of corruption.
