Hello Friends,

We are Going to talk about the Process of Taking Backup of Settings and Configuration of Vipre Database. We should be having that data in Our Hand (Remote Location or on Backup Server) so that whenever the Vipre Giving some Problem or Some Settings has been changed, We can restore it from somewhere.

There are 2 Scenarios :-
1) Vipre Database with SQLLite
2) Vipre Database with SQL

1) Vipre Database with SQLLite:-
To check whether your database is with SQL Lite, Check for the Services > SQL Server (Sunbelt).
If this Service is not Listed under Services it means your database is running via SQLLite.

In this Scenario, If you want to take Backup of Your Databases/Configuration, You have to Visit at Below Location of Your Machine/Server in which this Vipre installed:-
XP and 2003
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GFI Software\VIPRE Business
Vista Win7 or 2008
C:\Programdata\GFI Software\VIPRE Business

From above mention Location You have to Copy the SQL Lite and Configuration Folders in to your External/backup Drive (location).

For taking the backup of Policies, You can Just Right Click on Policies and Export then to Desired Location, From here you can make the Import of same Policies in Future.

2) Vipre Database with SQL:-
If you are able to see the SQL Server (Sunbelt) Service then you have to Follow Below mention Steps to taking Backup of your database:-

(i) Install SQL Server Management Studio ( )

(ii) Once installed, Run it and Login in it. (Either By Windows Credentials or Via SQL Credentials).
Most probably you would be Getting the database name Already <Server Name>\SUNBELT

(iii) Right-Click your VIPRE database and select Tasks>Back up
    Note: If you have multiple VIPRE Databases (one for configuration, one for reporting, and one for quarantine), you will need to repeat these steps for each database
(iv) At the backup screen, set the Destination field to Disk and specify an area that suits your administrative needs.

(v) Click OK after the task completes successfully.
