TrackRecord DAB files

0 Likes

Problem:

In my TrackRecord directory, I found a bunch of files ending in the file extenstion DAB.  What are they?  Are they necessary for TrackRecord to run?

Resolution:

DAB files are backed up TrackRecord DAT files.  DAT files are the Data files which make up your database.  TrackRecord will automatically generate these backup files when you do a database backup or when you select the compact database option during a rebuild.

These file are not necessary for TrackRecord to run and are ignored by the TrackRecord client.

To restore a database from DAB files, do the following:

1.  Remove all other files from your database directory

2.  Rename your *.DAB files to *.DAT

3.  Run the TrackRecord rebuild utility on the DAT files.  The utility will rebuild your database files.
