Restore Options (Storage Area and FTI)

Use this dialog box to restore Storage Areas (file stores).

Restore ACLs Only

Specifies that the backed up Access Control Lists (ACLs) will be applied to files that have been restored without their ACLs, or to the existing files at the restore destination. Clear this option to restore without ACLs and consequently the data assumes the ACLs of the parent directory.

Restore Data Only

Specifies that the storage areas will be restored without their original ACLs. Files and folders will inherit the permissions of their parent folder or drive.

Restore Both Data and ACLs

Specifies that all storage areas will be restored with their original access control lists (i.e., ACL) and therefore their original security attributes.

Data in device node

Specifies that Unix raw devices can be restored to either another raw device or a file.  When selected, this activates the Unconditional Overwrite option, which is required for raw device restores to complete successfully.

Overwrite Files

Select this option if you wish to overwrite all backed up storage areas.

  • Overwrite if file on media is newer

    Select this option if you wish to overwrite only newer storage areas.

  • Unconditional Overwrite

    Specifies whether the recovered data is unconditionally written to the specified location.

    If cleared:

    • Files/directories whose names are the same as those in the recovery path and where the archived data is as old or older are not recovered.
    • files/directories whose names are the same as those in the recovery path and where the archived data is newer are recovered.
    • Files/directories whose names are different from those in the recovery path are recovered.

Restore to same folder

Select to restore the data to the same path from which it was backed up.

Source Client

Enter the name of the source client computer on which the file store resides.

Destination Client

Enter the name of the destination client computer on which the file store will be restored.

Destination Path

Enter the name of the path in which the file store will reside on the destination client computer.

Preserve Source Paths

Specifies the action taken when the data is recovered to another destination.

  • Preserve n levels from end of source path

    Specifies whether the recovery operation must keep the specified number of levels at the end of source path of the selected data. For example, if the selected data is Documents\Memos\Sales, this option is set to 1 and the Destination folder is temp, the data will be recovered as \temp\Sales.

    However, if this option is used to restore a file in a path that contains any valid wildcard expression (e.g., Documents\**\Sales), the default value of 1 for the option cannot be changed. Therefore, only the last found occurrence of the file is recovered, and the recovered data for all the other occurrences of the file are overwritten.

  • Remove n levels from beginning of source path

    Specifies whether the recovery operation must remove the specified number of levels from the beginning of source path of the selected data. For example, if the selected data is Documents\Memos\Sales, this option is set to 1 and the Destination folder is \temp, the data will be recovered as \temp\Sales. (This option becomes available only when the Restore to Same Paths option is cleared.)

Advanced

Click to select additional restore options.

Save As Script

Click to open the Save As Script dialog, which allows you to save this operation and the selected options as a script file (in XML format). The script can later be executed from the Command Line Interface using qoperation execute command.

When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog will have a corresponding XML parameter in the script file. When executing the script, you can modify the value for any of these XML parameters as per need.
