Recovering full back up 

This tool enables you to restore a full system backup.  This may be necessary if you are often getting error messages about the indexes (and an index rebuild fails).  Or you have switched to another PC, have installed Retail Business correctly (using the install procedure on the distribution CD) and now wish to recover the entire database.

The system recovery form is as follows:

In the above case, as no backup can be found, there is nothing to restore.

Make sure the recovery media is in place before selecting it from the dropdown list.  Once the process has started it cannot be interrupted while recovering from any one disk.  If you do interrupt it there is a good chance that the system will not operate correctly as some records depend on others to display correctly.
