2.1 Before Upgrading PlateSpin Protect

Before upgrading your PlateSpin Protect software to version 10.3:

Use this procedure to manually back up your database files, which you can use if you need to roll back.

  1. On your server host, stop MS SQL services:

    1. On the Start menu, click Run, type services.msc, then click OK.

    2. In the Services window, right-click the SQL Server items, then select Stop.

  2. Copy all *.mdf and *.ldf files to a location outside the product installation directory. The default location of these files is:

    \Program Files\PlateSpin Protect Server\Database

  3. Restart MS SQL services that you stopped in Step 1.
