To backup or restore the Malwarebytes Management Console's program and configuration files, use the Data Backup and Restoration tool.  We recommend backing up the Malwarebytes Management Console before you Move the Malwarebytes Management Console to another server.

  2. Click the Start menu.

  3. Search for Data Backup and Restoration, then press Enter.
    For Server 2008, click All Programs > Malwarebytes Management Server > Data Backup and Restoration.

  4. When the User Account Control window appears, click Yes.

  5. In the Management Server Data Backup and Restoration window, choose either:
    1. Back up data: creates a backup copy of the database
    2. Restore data: recovers data from an existing backup.

  6. To choose a backup location or locate an existing backup, click Browse.

  7. Choose a folder, then click OK.

  8. Click Start.

  9. To backup or restore data, click Yes.

  10. When the Data Backup and Restoration Tool is finished, one of the following windows appear:
    • Backup has been completed.
      Click Yes to open the backup location or No to exit.
      Backup has been completed.

      Click OK to exit.
      Restoration has been completed.
