Restart from .bak file 150 150 Heredis Help Knowledgebase

Heredis regularly creates a backup of your file in the .bak format.

This file is stored in your Heredis folder at yourgenealogyname.hmw.

It will come in handy should you experience a problem with your original file. Indeed, closing Heredis inadvertently (due to a power failure, because you turned off your computer too fast…), could damage your file.

Tips: Do backups and avoid shutting down your computer too quickly after closing Heredis.

In case your file can be open anymore, you can restart from .bak file.

  • From the Heredis home page, click the indented wheel displayed to the right of your genealogy name.
  • Select Restore from .bak file… in the dropdown menu and click on the Yes button to validate the restoration.
