PolicyLevel.Recover Method

Replaces the configuration file for this PolicyLevel with the last backup (reflecting the state of policy prior to the last time it was saved) and returns it to the state of the last save.

Namespace:  System.Security.Policy
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void Recover()


The policy level does not have a valid configuration file.

This method does not make modifications to the current PolicyLevel. Instead, it updates the PolicyLevel object's file and the PolicyLevel that the security system uses to evaluate policy.

This method is used by the caspol -recover option (see Caspol.exe (Code Access Security Policy Tool)).
