One of our users delete by mistake a file. We can restore the deleted file from a backup of archive server data?
I think this link will help you to restore the file if is deleted (not destroyed) https://forum.solidworks.com/message/242882#242882.
User did use shift, but we have a backup of all file structure from vault name\Data\ and hexa folder structure. As far as I know the last file version is kept like all other files (not archived with a scrambled name)
If you want latest version only then copy the latest version of the file from archive paste into the vault. If you want all the versions of the file (if backup is available) then we can restore all the versions using api i.e. copy the ver1 file into the vault check in and check out the file and overwrite the file using file.copy method in .net. this will create a new version of the file.
Hope this will help you.
It's not as simple as just putting the file back in the vault. When the user 'destroyed' the file, the record of the document was removed from the database. The file had a unique documentid that needs to be retrieved from the database backup along with archive folder info and possible reference info.
I would recommend contacting your VAR for assistance.
If you want to restore the file back with all the history, revisions, references and all metadata then you need to follow joy's advise or you want just file back to vault then you can use copy paste. using copy paste you can get file but epdm considers this one as a new file.
The only thing that meter is to restore the file. Of course this file will loose all his history. I need a confirmation that file can be found in (backup) archive file structure.
Hi Faur, What is the File type ur trying to restore.CAD will have all reference issues etc.
Like Garon mentioned its not simple.
U'll have to restore your SQL Db (old) to some server.then find the DocumentID of the deleted file.convert it into hex.find that file from the archive server Data Backup.
