Restore by Jobs Filter

Specify jobs from list

Specifies that you will be able to select one or more jobs from the Backup History dialog box based on a fixed time range for the jobs that you specify by using the Absolute option below. Backup jobs whose start and end times fall within this time range will be selected and eligible for restore.  This option is selected by default and, when selected, the Absolute option within Time Range is automatically selected.  Once you make all of your selections on this dialog box using all these options and click OK, the Backup History dialog box displays.  From this dialog box, you can specify the actual job(s) to restore.

Specify time range

Specifies that all eligible jobs will be selected based on the relative time range that you specify for the jobs by using the Relative option below.  Backup jobs that were completed within the time range indicated relative to when the restore will start will be eligible for restore.  When you select this option, the Relative option within Time Range is automatically selected.  Once you make all of your selections on this dialog box using all these options and click OK, the Restore Options for All Selected Items dialog box displays.
