[resolved] After 1 Restore Database restore is not available (3 posts)

    After a backup (db, uploads, other) Restore works great 1 time. If I try to use the same Backup for another Restore then Database is not available. I have repeated this experiment several times. I'm using ftp storage for the backup, seems to work well.

    Hi CaliforniaBear,

    It makes sense if you think about it. When you restore, you are restoring the database back to the point that the database was backed up - which is a point before the (then-future) database backup was complete. So, when you restore, the database's record of what database records there are, does not include itself. You need to press one of the 'rescan' links to pick it up again.

    Hi David,

    I'm not sure it makes sense to me :-) On a PC you can chose from several system restore dates.

    However, rescan fixes the problem. Thanks much for that information.

    I do find that restore stops during is process sometimes. If I cancel and run it again it works.
