Restore a backup of my Vault file
If you need to roll back an unintentional change to your Vault file, or if you are recovering from a file corruption, hardware failure, or loss or theft of your computer, you can easily restore your Vault file using a backup you have made previously.
To restore a backup
1.Click File > View Backups of [Filename.pvf].
2.The View Backups dialog will appear. Select a backup to restore. In most cases, you will want to restore the most recent backup, although depending on the situation, you may want an earlier backup.
3.Click View selected backup in Windows Explorer. An Explorer window will open with the selected backup selected. The file name of the backup is the name of your original Vault file with a date and time appended to the end.
4.Copy the selected .pvf file to the Clipboard.
5.In Explorer, navigate to the folder where your original Vault file is saved.
6.Paste the file from the Clipboard.
7.Rename the pasted file to remove the date and time from the file name. The file name should now be the same as your original Vault file. The file can now be opened as normal in Regex Password Vault.
