Ok, due to a few bonehead moves, we have managed for some operations not to work as before on our installation, some maps were disconnected, some fields deleted, when i try to check things in , entire directories are deleted ... is there a way to restore those original maps and fields short of reinstall or if i have to reinstall will my data be intact when I restore, or will my restore reflect the damaged system.

    Well you must have been backing up regulary right.

    Depending on what was changed you may be able to reversed somethings, but you need to know specially what you did. Can you share more details?

    Let me know. Thanks.

    The database backup is a complete FCSvr snapshot minus the media (primary and proxy) and the app itself. So the db backup includes all the asset records, productions, and admin settings like responses, subscriptions, watchers, devices, maps, etc. The database backup needs to be restored against the version that spawned it, so if you have a backup from v1.1.1, it needs to be restored by FCSvr 1.1.1 with all the same device and paths that the backup's system had.

    All I'm saying is that if you have a backup from your system running 1.1.1, it needs to be restored by that same version. If you have backups since you upgraded to 1.5.X, you should restore with 1.5.X. It isn't clear to me which backups you have and which version you are running based on this thread.

    Sorry, can't say for sure without a look at your system. And by now I'm sure you've accumulated enough work that you wouldn't want to step back to one of those backups. You can't just re-make the fields and maps you lost?
