Finally managed to restore my database
Here is some feedback : I succeded the restore by recreating a new backup without any optionnal file, and it worked as a charm.
I think that you should rework a bit the backup/restore documentation to specify that adding optionnal file to backup increase HUGELY the restore time :
- If you add "note definitions" to the backup : when restoring, PT4 seems to analyse the provided .zip file before rendering the "Restore" page, on which you can select "optionnal file" to load and start the restore (up to 2 hours of PT4 freeze (program dont respond) and there is no feedback at all for the user.
- You should precise that some folder should be simply copied to the new PT4 install instead of restoring it from a backup. --> I spent 30 hours on a brand new (and powerful) PC, just for restoring 5% of my note definition during my first try...)
- You should precise / highlight that NoteCaddy should be closed before lauching a restore too
Make a better documentation should save time both for users and for you moderators
