How can I change the default SQL recovery mode for new projects' databases?



Sammation or eDiscovery 5.6.3 SP 4 or newer



  1. Open services.msc
  2. Navigate to "C:\Program Files\AccessData\Common\FTK Business Services"
  3. Open "AdgWindowsServiceHost.exe.config" in a text editor
  4. Find the <appSettings> code block
  5. Add the line below to the <appSettings> code block

    <add key="CaseDBRecoveryMode" value="2"/>  <!-- Full (FullTransactionLogging) = 1,  Simple (FullBackupRequired) = 2 -->

  6. Save the changes to "AdgWindowsServiceHost.exe.config"
  7. Restart the "AccessData Business Services Common" service



By default, new projects' databases are set to SIMPLE recovery mode.  This can be changed by modifying a setting in AdgWindowsServiceHost.exe.config.
