During installation, you have the option to restore your system to a previously known state on the same version.

  1. Make a copy of these folders:
    Folder to copy Notes
    The \site\conf folder Contains your cust.prop file and license file.

    The \site\lib folder

    You only need to copy this folder if you have added any custom JAR files.

    The \site\data\executions folder

    Optionally, copy this folder if you want to restore temporary run data.

    If you selected Local User during installation, the site folder will be located at:

    %LOCALAPPDATA%\\site

    If you selected All Users during installation, the site folder will be located at:

    C:\ProgramData\\site

  2. Save a copy of these folders somewhere outside of the \site directory.
  3. Ensure that you have a copy of a recent backup file. By default, a backup is performed daily at 12 p.m, if the application is running. The default location of backup files depends on the option that you selected during installation:
    • If you selected Local User during installation, the default location of backup files is:

      %LOCALAPPDATA%\\site\data

    • If you selected All Users during installation, the default location of backup files is:

      C:\ProgramData\\site\data

    Note: If you have upgraded from a release prior to 3.6.0, the backups may be in the original default directory \Data3SixtyAnalye\site\data You can edit the default backup file location in the cust.prop file, for more information see "Creating and configuring backups" in the help.
  4. Uninstall your system by navigating to your Data360 Analyze installation directory and double-clicking the uninstall file.
  5. Install a new instance of Data360 Analyze, and select Restore from a backup when prompted. Choose the backup file that you copied in step 3.
    Note: The backup / restore facility can only be used to restore your system to a previously known state on the same version. For example, if you are installing Data360 Analyze 3.6.1, you can only restore to a backup file that was created on a 3.6.1 installation.
  6. After installation, complete the following steps:
    1. Stop the server, see Starting and stopping the Data360 Analyze Server.
    2. Replace the executions, conf and lib folders with the ones that you copied in step 1.
    3. Restart the server, see Starting and stopping the Data360 Analyze Server.
  7. After restoring, if you want to upgrade to a newer version, ensure that you first start Data360 Analyze fully, then shut it down before running the upgrade. For upgrade instructions, see Upgrading.
