My main PC has crashed and I do have the database file ...fdb, however I had no possibility to run a backup file before the crash as described on your site. Please advise if there is any way to retrieve it and have all my clients and other info set up on Projetex installed on a new PC.

Thank you

Dear Karolina Suliokiene,

Thank you for your comment.

Yes, it is fully possible. You can just copy your projetex.fdb file into the '\Projetex 9\Projetex Server\Database\' folder on your new PC. Then Projetex will use this file as its current database.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
