Data - How do I Restore from a Backup file?

Submitted 3/2/2011 by Klok Service


To restore from a backup file, go to the Tools -> Preferences -> Backups menu option.
Make note of the file path shown under 'Backup Location'.
Then click the 'Restore from Backup...' button.
Navigate to the backup file folder location and select the backup file you wish to restore from.

   Note: Each backup file is named using the following date/timestamp format-> YYYY-MM-DD_JulianTimeStamp.klok
            Therefore a back up created on 03/27/2014 at 1:20pm would look like-> 2014-03-27_1395940828975.klok

The default folder location containing the .klok backup files is as follows depending on your operating system. Please note, in the example file paths shown below, the characters listed to the right of the decimal after Klok2 are unique for each user install.

Windows: C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Klok2.DD7F2188B985C2439837C76B42A187050457E61B.1\Local Store\backups
    Note: The 'AppData' folder is often a hidden folder, requiring you to manually type the path in the Windows Explorer file manager utility.
Mac OSX: user/Library/Preferences/Klok2.DD7F2188B985C2439837C76B42A187050457E61B.1/Local Store/backups
