    After each change mother key, the previous mother key is stored in a specific file.
    [YYYY_MM_DD-HH_MM_SS] => daily date
    The active mother keyis in the file: "Librariries/secret.dat"
    Rename the previous file with ".old" and rename the file
    "Librariries/[YYYY_MM_DD-HH_MM_SS]-secret.dat" in "Librariries/secret.dat".
    Load the old mother key and test if you can read your old datas.

    But my concern is if I forget operator key which we have to insert to load the mother key then how can I recover the old data.

    Operator Key is just for protect your Mother Key. Do you know your Mother Key ? If you've got the value of your Mother Key, you can use the "SecretServer management" screen. In this screen, you can recreate a new "Mother Key".
