What types of files can SecureRecovery for Project repair?
SecureRecovery for Project is designed for Microsoft Project databases. You can determine whether this powerful tool will be able to restore your data by using the cost-free demo version to analyze your files.
Should I use the demo version before buying the full version?
Installing and running the demo will help you understand the features of SecureRecovery for Project, and because the demo version is extremely similar to the commercial version, you can safely use it to determine whether your full database will be recoverable.
How else is the SecureRecovery for Project demo different from the fully licensed version?
The primary difference is that the demo version is limited to a pre-defined number of database rows. Placeholders will identify whether additional rows are recoverable. For example, in the MSP_TASKS table, excess rows will have “demo” text. The fully licensed version will be able to recover these columns.
To protect your files, back them up before making recovery attempts with either the demo version or the full commercial version of SecureRecovery for Project. Remember to review the demo output; missing rows that do not have placeholder text may not be recoverable.
Where can I find out about the different software license options?
View our Licensing webpage for details.
After I recovered my Microsoft Project files, they have a smaller file size. Why is this?
This occurs because SecureRecovery for Project replaces areas with severe damage with blank (empty) space. The smaller file size does not mean that important information is missing, and it is an expected consequence of the data recovery process.
As the demo version of the program uses placeholder text, it often creates output files that are much smaller than the originals. Once again, this is normal.
What commands can I use when executing SecureRecovery for Project from the command line?
Use the call below to access the program:
To indicate individual unspecified characters, use ‘?’. For multiple characters, use ‘*’. Note that command line functionality is only available with an appropriate license (in the case of SecureRecovery for Project, this feature requires a Service or Enterprise license).
If you have issues with this feature, make sure that you have created a directory for the restored Microsoft Project files. Otherwise, the program may not operate properly.
SecureRecovery for Project ran successfully and created several SQL scripts along with a batch file. How do I use these new files to access my information?
You can individually process the SQL scripts (starting with schema.sql and dataNNNN.sql, in that order), or you can run the batch file, which SecureRecovery for Project generates to make the import process easier. The batch file should be located in the same folder as your SQL scripts.
