Recover Options for All Selected Items (General)

Use the Recover Options dialog box to control how the specified data is to be recovered. This dialog box is also used for selecting options related to scheduled or non-scheduled search and recovery operations. 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.

Recover ACLs

Specifies whether all data to be recovered retains its original access control lists (i.e., ACLs) and therefore its original security attributes. If cleared, the data is recovered without the ACLs. Consequently, the recovered data assumes the ACLs of the parent directory.

Unconditional Overwrite

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

If cleared:

  • Files or 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 or directories whose names are the same as those in the recovery path and where the archived data is newer are recovered.
  • Files or directories whose names are different from those in the recovery path are recovered.

Restore Destination

  • Destination Client/Computer/Server

    Displays the name of the client computer to which the selected data will be recovered. To change the destination computer, select one from the list. The list includes clients which are established as clients within the CommCell.

    By default, data is recovered to the same computer from which it was archived.

  • Recover to Same Paths

    Specifies whether the recovery operation will recover data to the same path from which it was archived in the Destination Computer. (Clear this option to restore to a different path and activate the Destination folder box.)

  • Destination folder

    Use this space to enter the path on the destination computer to which the data will be recovered. If the specified path does not exist, it  will be created during the recovery process.

Preserve Source Paths

Specifies the action taken when the data is recovered to another destination. The options are available only when the Recover to Same Paths option is cleared.

  • 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.)
