What revision of OpenLab CDS are you running? If you look at your System Configuration in the OpenLab Control Panel's Administration view, what do you have selected as the Storage Type?
When you say that you exported your data, how did you do so? Did you use the Export function in the Data Selection view of Data Analysis (below)?
If so, your data would be exported as a *.olax file. In order to load this *.olax data in Data Analysis, you would need to first Import the *.olax file back into the software.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

While it is possible to potentially backup your data in this way, it is not really time efficient. The recommended software and data backup / restore procedures are outlined in the Maintenance Procedures section of the OpenLab CDS Workstation Plus (with Content Management) Guide (section begins on page 70):
I tried that. It need Admin rights, and I need to disable some services as well.
I was able to access the services.msc.
Couldn't disable the 2 Services.
Also opened the control /name Backup.. But it didn't went any further.
But thanks for the Info, so I can throw the ball to the IT
That is correct, you would need to be logged in as an admin in order to perform a backup or restore.
Hi Mr White,
Backup of databases and file structures is normally the purview of IT, especially since they normally have the elevated privileges needed to stop/start services and have access to places normal users do not.
The manual listed above is the place to go for the info on what you need to do. If you do decide to go that route, then please make sure you validate that the process can backup and restore the database and files correctly. This can be done on a virtual machine or a real one, just not the same one as the backup is performed.
Thanks for the info. The only thing is what a normal user can do, is to save the backup within the "Content Manager"
To do a Windows Backup, or start / stop processes im not authorised nor qualified.
I fully agree with you, that the process with the Batch file over the task sheduler is way better.
