Advanced Restore/Recover/Retrieve Options (General)

Use this dialog box to access additional restore/recover/retrieve options. Note that all the options described in this help may not be available and only the options displayed in the dialog box are applicable to the component installed on the client.

Automatically Detect Regular Expressions

Specifies whether to use regular expressions in defining the Source Paths. This does not apply to Filter Paths.  When selected, the system will recognize supported regular expressions (wildcards) in the specified Source Path.  When cleared, the system will read the specified Source Path as literal.

Skip Errors and Continue

For index-based agents, this advanced restore/recover/retrieve option enables a restore/recover/retrieve job to continue despite media errors. This option also provides an output file that lists the full path names of the files that failed to restore/recover/retrieve.

Impersonate (Windows, NetWare) User

Specifies whether to submit the Windows or NetWare logon information for the current restore/recover operation. This information is needed only if you intend to restore/recover data to a mapped network drive, shared network drive, or directory to which you have no write, create, or change privileges, or for restoring to applications.

Depending on the agent, there are as many as three separate User Impersonation accounts: this one for the function described, one for Pre and Post backup/migrate processes, and one for Pre and Post restore/recover processes. Each account operates independently of the other(s).
