Backup Source Configuration

  1. Name your new database.

  2. Source
    Select the source from your local machine or various cloud-based options where your desired backup is stored.

  3. Backup Directory
    Select the file location that you set when you created your backup.

    • If your source is a cloud-based database, you will likely need to enter credentials and passwords as well as location.
  4. Disable ongoing tasks after restore
    Disabling will likely require ongoing tasks to be created again.

  5. Skip indexes
    Skipping indexes will require your indexes to be built anew.

  6. Restore Point Choose the backup version which will populate your new, restored database.

    • Snapshot backup type includes fully built indexes which makes restoring the database faster.
    • Full or Incremental types include index definitions from which the new indexes will be built.

Note: The backup will be restored only to the current node after restore. This database can be added to other nodes using the "Add node" button in the Manage group Studio view.
