When you need to restore the projects on your computer (because you have a new computer, or the entire system was reinstalled), follow the steps below.
1.Save the *.mqbkf file to a folder that you will be able to access from memoQ.
Important: Make sure that you back up and restore your projects in the same version of memoQ. Backing up and restoring projects is not cross-compatible. If you back up a memoQ 2014 R2 project in memoQ 2013 R2 or memoQ 2014 and restore it, than the memoQ 2014 R2extra information is lost. Back up and restore should always be done with the latest release.If you plan to upgrade your copy, first install the original version, then restore your projects. After this, you can upgrade your copy to the newest version. When you start the newest version for the first time, it will convert all resources that were restored. When you open the restored projects for the first time, memoQ will upgrade the projects too. Build number differences do not matter: if you create the backup copy in memoQ 2014.01, you can restore the backup in memoQ 2014.02, for example.
3.In the Dashboard click the Restore button on the Project ribbon tab. The memoQ restore from backup wizard starts.
4. In the first wizard screen, click the ellipsis button. An Open dialog appears. Find and select the *.mqbkf file.
The path and name of the *.mqbkf file appears in the Package to restore field. After you select the package to restore, click Next.
Note: Choose the My backup is in my Language Terminal profile when you backed up your project at Language Terminal, and now you want to restore it from there.
5. memoQ reads through the package, and displays the second screen of the wizard.
At the top half of this screen, you can select where the restored projects will be created. At the bottom half of the screen, you can select what projects you want to restore from the package. (If the package contains multiple projects, you do not have to restore all of them.)
Note: If you already have a copy of the project on your computer, you can choose to update it. To do this, click the Add link next to the name of the project. The link will change to Update. In this case, memoQ does not create a new project. Instead, it replaces the existing project with the new contents.
Important: If you update a project from the backup package, all changes made since the backup will be lost. memoQ also overwrites all existing translation memories, term bases, or LiveDocs corpora attached to the project.
After you make your choices on this wizard page, click Next.
6.memoQ displays the Ready to restore screen of the wizard. At this point, you can still click Back, and change your choices (you can even select another .mqbkf file). However, if you are ready to perform the restore, click Finish. memoQ restores the selected projects from the package.
