6.7.3 Backup Recovery

The Backup Recovery wizard is used to recover MySQL Enterprise Backup backups. For more information about creating MySQL Enterprise Backup backups using MySQL Workbench, see Section 6.7.2, “Online Backup”.

The Backup Recovery wizard allows you to restore backups from folders, image files, and backup profiles created by Section 6.7.2, “Online Backup”. Before you can restore a MySQL instance from a backup to a target server, you must first delete all files inside the data directory of that server.

Click Restore from the Navigator area in the sidebar and then select the appropriate option. The following figure shows an example recovery session.

  • Backup Profile: Choose from the available MySQL Enterprise Backup profiles on your system.

  • Backup Image File: Opens the system's file browser; choose a backup image file to restore.

In the following figure, the example session restores a full backup profile that was created by MySQL Workbench Online Backup. After choosing the "FullBackup" profile that we created earlier, use the next page to review its upcoming restoration.
