Importing vs. Creating

Importing an existing database, or table, is ideal when it is a large file with many rows and columns. Importing allows all of the information to be captured by SHIELD with a few clicks.

Creating a database, or table, is perfect where there are just a few rows or columns of data that you want to manually enter into SHIELD.

How to Import a Database:

  1. Login to your SHIELD account: https://shield.disasterrecovery.com
  2. Navigate to the Data component.
  3. Click the arrow to the right of “Data Tables in Your Plan”.
  4. Select “Import a New Data Table”.
  5. Give your new data table a name.
  6. Click “Choose File” and find the file you wish to import.
  7. Click “Import Data” at the bottom left of the page.
