  • 1.  CCC Harvest 4.0.0 Backup / data export

    Posted Feb 08, 2019 06:01 PM

    I am trying to find a utility or script that can help me extract the CCC data from our old Harvest install.  From the look at the version number this application has not been updated in a long time.   If anyone has any old tips or code samples I would greatly appreciate it.   The application is running in a VM but I would like to just pull all the data I can out of this and integrate it with a read only SVN or some other free tool.  

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    If you still have a working Harvest broker and Workbench installation, the best thing would be to do a check out of the latest versions of your project files.  The content of your files is stored as "blob" data inside your database, so there is not any easy way to extract it other than a Harvest Check Out process. 


    In your Harvest software Administrator Guide, there is an appendix that lists all the tables and columns in the Harvest database, and an overview of the table relationships.
