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  code block
  5. Add the line below to the  code block


  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.
