4.5.1 Restoring a backup
- Geneious format ﬁle The easiest way to restore this is to drag and drop the Geneious ﬁle in to the folder in Geneious Prime where you want it to go. Alternatively you can use Restore Backup in the File menu and the backup will be added under the Local folder in your current database.
- Archive all data and settings: It is strongly recommended that you use Restore Backup in the ﬁle menu to load the zip ﬁle rather than unzipping it manually. Some operating systems may not be able to unzip the data correctly. The Restore Backup command will unzip your backed up data directory to a folder of your choosing which you can then load immediately. If you choose not to load it immediately you can switch to the restored data directory by going to Preferences in the Tools menu and changing the Data Storage Location on the General tab.
