Restore the PDQ Inventory Database

In the case of something happening to your system and you need to revert to a previous version of a database, you can restore the database through an elevated command prompt.

IMPORTANT: This does not restore PDQ Inventory to a different version, this only restores the database.

To restore the PDQ Inventory database:

1.Run cmd.exe as Administrator.

2.To view the options available when restoring the database, use the following command: PDQInventory.exe RestoreDatabase.

3.Enter the number of the database you wish to restore.

4.(Optional) To automatically restore the most recent database, use the following command: PDQInventory.exe RestoreDatabase -RestoreMostRecent. The database being overwritten will be renamed and left in the same folder.
