About this task

Exported databases are saved as .dbexport files and stored in any location accessible by the computer.

To export an archive database:


  1. Open the archive database with SCT.
  2. On the Tools menu, select Database > Export Database. The Export dialog box appears.

  3. Pick a location for the export file. You may want to create a folder where all exported databases are maintained (for example, MyExports).
  4. Accept the default name or enter a different unique name for your export file.
    Note: If an exported file name of the same name already exists, a message appears to verify that you want to overwrite the existing file. Click Yes to overwrite or No to cancel the save process.
  5. Click Export. An animated clock appears while the export is occurring.

    If the database contains certificates, an Encrypt Certificates window appears before the export starts. If you want to include certificates, specify a password and confirm the password. If you do not want to include certificates, unmark the Include Certificates in Export? check box. Click OK to continue. An animated clock appears while the export is occurring.

  6. Click OK to the message box that appears to indicate the export has completed successfully.
