From the Project Editor (Database Editor and CtEdit in version 2 and 1) I tried to restore a project using the File|Backupile|ackup Restore menu option. I specified that I wanted to restore from an area other than drive a: or b:, and hence supplied a path. I hit ok and the backup /restore utility warned me that it was about to delete all files in my current project. I hit OK to continue and all seemed to work well, in fact the restore was very fast. Then when I tried to compile the project it didn't work and gave an error. 

When specifying a directory location to restore from, you must ensure that you are precise. If the Backup / Restore utility cannot find the location of your backup file (which must be called ctbackup.001), then it will terminate without a warning. It will not tell you that it could not find your backup file.

When specifying a path, only specify as far as the directory, and do not place a final backslash after the directory.

C:\BACKUPS\PROJ_45  correct

C:\BACKUPS\PROJ_45\  incorrect

C:\BACKUPS\PROJ_45\CTBACKUP.001 incorrect
