How do I move my Inventory database to a new computer?

Below are the steps for moving your Inventory data that you backed up using the Backup utility in the IntelliScanner Dashboard.

Part 1: Use the restore utility

Use the Restore utility in the IntelliScanner Dashboard. Launch the Dashboard, click on the "Tools" menu and select "Restore Databases". When prompted, select the "Apparent Corporation Backup" backup folder you created on the original computer - don't navigate down into it, just select the main folder.

Part 2: Move over your database file

Next, by default, Inventory will save it database file to the "Documents" folder in your Home directory (though it's possible to save it elsewhere). The database file name will be based on whatever template you choose - for example, in this screen shot, you can see that the database file name is "Computer Hardware.inv2".

Launch Inventory and when prompted to create a new database or open an existing one, select to open an existing database, then select your database file that you moved over to the new computer.
