How to Reset the PowerSDR Database to the Factory Default Settings

By resetting a PowerSDR database, you are saving the current database to your desktop with a unique date/time stamp as the file name and instructing PowerSDR to delete the working copy. After PowerSDR restarts, a new database will be created.

NOTE: The Database Reset feature is the preferred method of creating a new PowerSDR database. 

1. ) Start PowerSDR
2.) Left click on the Setup option in the top menu bar.
3.) Left click on the button labeled Reset Database at the lower left-hand corner of the PowerSDR Setup applet.

5.) PowerSDR will copy the existing database to your Windows desktop and automatically shut down. The saved database will have a naming format of PowerSDR_mm-dd-yyyy_hh.mmXM.mdb or PowerSDR_mm-dd-yyyy_hh.mmXM.xml for later versions of PowerSDR.

  • mm = numerical equivalent of the current month the backup database file was created
  • dd = numerical equivalent of the current day the backup database file was created
  • yyyy = numerical equivalent of the current year the backup database file was created
  • hh.mm = numerical equivalent of the current hour and minute the backup database file was created
  • Xm = is either PM or AM time designator the backup database file was created

6.) When you restart PowerSDR, a new database will be created and you will be prompted for the initial setup.

NOTE: When you are running the PowerSDR database initialization routine do NOT import a previous database into the new database.
