Recovery for Project

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions And Answers

 
Q: Can Recovery for Project repair my Project file?
A:

The effective way to find out if a Project file is recoverable is to try the demo version of Recovery for Project on it. Visit the Demo page for a free copy of the demo.

Product specifications with lists of items recovered and not recovered is available at the Product Information page.

Note: Always backup your original corrupted Project file before proceeding with any recovery activity!

 
Q: What limitations does the demo version of Recovery for Project have?
A: The demo version recovers limited number of the database rows. In the remaining rows the following fields of the MSP_TASKS table will be replaced by 'demo' text:
  • TASK_START_DATE
  • TASK_NAME
  • TASK_FINISH_DATE
Full version will restore demo-limited rows as well.

Note that no additional tables or records or any other elements or features of the original file will be recovered by commercial version of Recovery for Project if not present in demo output.

 
Q: I have tried the demo. How do I decide whether to purchase the full version of Recovery for Project?
A:

Evaluating the results of demo recovery can help in making the decision.

 
Q: What are the differences between product licenses?
A:

Details of current licensing scheme are described at the Licensing page.

 
Q: Why do results of recovery contain less data than the original Project file?
A: This is normal. The damaged parts of your Project file will convert to zero size on output. The other common reason of file size decrease is when some of features of the original file are not supported and therefore absent from the recovered file.
Demo-recovered file is smaller because it mostly consists of demo placeholders than actual data.
 
Q: Running Recovery for Project from command line (through Windows Start -> Run menu).
A:

If your license type is Enterprise or Service, you can run Recovery for Project from command line and use these calls in your batch files. Standard version does not support command line. The format for command line call is:

prr.exe <original filename with path> "<path to directory to store the recovered file(s)>"
(without angle brackets).

Please note that the directory for recovered file(s) should be created before starting the recovery.

Command line mode supports patterns '*' (replaces group of symbols) and '?' (replaces one symbol).

 
Q: After running Recovery for Project on the corrupted file, a folder with sql script(s) and batch file has been created. How could these files be transfigured into a new file?
A:

To recreate file, process resulting sql scripts starting with schema.sql and following by dataNNNN.sql. The file will be recreated from scratch.

To make the import procedure more convenient for the end-user an appropriate batch file is automatically created and put in the same folder as sql script(s).
