Data Backup

PhraseExpress automatically creates backups of your data, depending if you use a phrase file or a SQL server.

  • PhraseExpress does not create backups of the SQL database! Please use the back system provided with your SQL server.
  • Frequently backup your phrase file/databases to external storage media.

Local phrase file

PhraseExpress automatically creates a backup of each phrase file change as configured in the PhraseExpress Settings » Phrase file.

To restore an earlier phrase file version :
  1. Open the main program window.
  2. Highlight the desired local phrase file node in the tree view.
  3. Click File » Restore from backup.
  4. Select the desired archive:

After confirmation, PhraseExpress restore the selected file version.

SQL server

If using a SQL server, PhraseExpress itself does not backup SQL databases.

However, the PhraseExpress client keeps the history of each phrase change, including a time/datestamp and name of the editor.

To restore earlier phrase contents:
  1. Open the main program window.
  2. Right-click the desired phrase in the tree view and select command "Restore earlier version" from the context menu.
  3. Select from the desired archived versions and review the real-time preview in the main program window.
