How to Restore a File from Automatic Backups
All your work is stored locally on your computer, which means that if your computer suffers a major malfunction you are in peril of losing all your work. As such, we highly recommend making a regular copy of your files to an external drive or cloud location (eg OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox) so your work can be restored.
Refer to our Backup Settings page for details on how to change your backup location and frequency.
Restore File From Backup
- Click on the Settings menu and select Backup Settings.
- Select the date from which to back up from, and expand the required folder (click the +) to restore the selected file:
When the backup file is restored the existing file will be overwritten, so rename the current file prior to restoring if you want to keep it.
It’s always good practice to frequently copy the Optuma folder in your Documents library to an external drive, USB stick, or cloud drive in case your C:\ drive fails completely.
