Database operations

In this article: How to Configure cloud, Change password, Rename, Backup, Restore, and Delete a database.                                                                         

!NB Functionality described in the article is available only in SafeInCloud generation 2, but not in SafeInCloud original.

Each database in SafeInCloud has a set of basic operations. In order to proceed to operations with the database, select Tools>Manage Databases in the menu.

Then the Databases tab of the Options dialog will display all available databases and basic information about them: database name, database file name, cloud synchronization settings, and the time of the last synchronization.
There is an Actions button next to each database, which contains the available operations on the appropriate database.

There are the following operations:

Configure cloud – configures the synchronization with a cloud and other devices (see Cloud synchronization);

Sync – starts database synchronization with cloud; 

Rename database – renames the local database (and also creates a database with a new name in the cloud).
!NB During this operation, the database with the original name will not be deleted from the cloud. On all devices using the original database, the name of the database must be changed manually to the new one! Otherwise, the devices will synchronize with different database files;

Delete database – removes the database from the device.
!NB During this operation, the cloud database is not deleted and will continue to be available on other devices;

Show – opens the folder in the explorer where the database is located;

Change Password – changes database password (see Password);

Backup – backups the database to a file on your device (files are encrypted and password protected); 

Restore – restores the database from a backup file;
