I have a time-bomb on my hands, and need your help asap! PLEASE!

A company that my company supports just have a Dataflex application with Linux Slackware.

What do I need to know?

Last day one of the 31 servers that comunicats with the central server had a power suplie problem.

When it turned on again, some files were missing. Ok Ok, now I just have to use the backup that I have right?

No, because I dont have any idea what kind of files Im allowed to overwrite, because, so far the only problem they have is that they cant print a kind of bar-code, but they kept inserting data thought the terminals.

I have to know the extension files that I can overwrite without loose any data inserted by the users. In this way I will just save those files to overwrite when some %$#!* like that happen again(hope not).

Thanks in advance, and I'm sorry for my "english", hope to fix at least this problem soon.



RE: Extensions


If your data is on an SQL backend you can restore pretty much anything.  All the data will be in the SQL database.

If you are running on Native DF files, Leave the *.DAT, *.Hdr, and *.vld files alone.  *.k* files can be re-created by re-indexing the tables.
