Restoring Files from Backups
To restore files from a backup, you should have the backup itself and all related auxiliary files (see Backup Auxiliary Files for regular backups or Backup Project File for archived backups). In the case of a multi-volume archive, all the parts must be present.
To restore files:
Note that when you restore files to the original location, the program will replace files on your disk with files from the backup. If you want to keep both versions of your files, restore files to another folder.
If your backup project is not listed in the program, your actions in order to restore files from this backup will differ depending on the backup type. If you have a regular backup, choose the Process > Restore from… command from the main menu and select the folder containing your backup (the top level folder explained in the Backup Storage section). The program will open the Restore dialog. You can use this dialog as it was described earlier on this page.
To restore from an archived backup, you should open it in the program using the Process > Open… command. The further steps will be the same as described above.
You are limited to restore from the storage that is currently specified as the backup destination in the project Properties dialog. If you changed the path to the destination, only the current path will be searched for the backup. If some versions of the backup were deleted or moved to another location, their content will not be available in the Restore dialog.
