Project File Recovery

Occasionally, DataVeil Support receives a request to help recover a lost project file.

It is therefore worth bringing to your attention that, by default, a copy of the project file is saved together with masking reports each time a masking run is performed, including for Preview runs. Command line runs will also generate reports here.

The setting is found by clicking on the Settings icon under the Execution>Reports tab.

It is recommended to keep this setting enabled because it not only provides automatic backups of your project files but it provides further documentation of the data masking that was actually performed together with the corresponding execution reports.


As shown below, the project file "kona.dvp" is in the folder containing a Masking run report.

You can open the folder or project file by right-clicking on it and then choosing the 'Open in OS Application' menu option.
