Dear Barend,

After uninstalling the ARIS Client which was installed with the LOCAL database system, you will find in a folder named Backup<date-time>LOCALSERVER several ZIP files. The file <date-time> has all your ARIS databases, scripts, filters etc. stored.

In case you accidentally uninstalled ARIS Client you could recover your data:

  1. Install ARIS Client with LOCAL once again
  2. After the setup has finished DO NOT start ARIS, instead, go to folder C:\SoftwareAG\ARIS9.8\LOCALSERVER\bin\work
  3. Rename the folder work_postgres_local to e.g. work_postgres_local_NEW
  4. Then extract the afore mentioned ZIP file into a new folder named C:\SoftwareAG\ARIS9.8\LOCALSERVER\bin\work\work_postgres_local
  5. Start ARIS Client and log into LOCAL to find your ARIS data (as you have left it before you uninstalled ARIS Client)
