Advanced Restore Options (Copy Precedence)

Choose the copy from which you wish to recover or retrieve. Select from the following options:

Restore from copy precedence

When selected, the system recovers or retrieves data from the selected storage policy copy (Synchronous Copy or Selective Copy).  If data does not exist in the specified copy, the data recovery or retrieve operation fails even if the data exists in another copy of the same storage policy.

When cleared, (or by default) the system recovers or retrieves data from the storage policy copy with the lowest copy precedence. If the data was pruned from the primary copy, the system automatically recovers or retrieves from the other copies of the storage policy in the following order:

  1. Lowest copy precedence to highest copy precedence among all synchronous copies.
  2. Lowest copy precedence to highest copy precedence among all selective copies (if your agent supports selective copies).

Once the data is found, it is recovered or retrieved, and no further copies are checked.

Copy Precedence

When selected, the system recovers or retrieves data from the copy with the specified precedence number.
