Step 6. Destination

Select where to restore the selected files.

You can choose one of the following destinations for your backup:

  • Restore to the original location This will restore the selected files to the same directory where the source files were located.
  • Restore to a specific location This will restore the selected files to a custom directory. You can make the Restore Wizard use this location as a default destination for newly created restore plans by enabling a corresponding option.

In case you use Glacier as the cloud storage, you are enabled to manage the Glacier retrieval fees.

Also, you can enable the following options:

  • Restore deleted files. This option enables you to select if to restore locally deleted files in case the corresponding backup plan prior was configured to keep track locally deleted files. Once you configure a new backup plan, the Backup Wizard enables you to choose whether or not the backup should store any data that has been deleted from local storage. When this option is enabled for a backup, the Restore Wizard lets you choose whether to include locally deleted files in the restored data
  • Overwrite existing files. This option specifies whether to replace the existing files in the destination folder with their newer versions or keep the older files and do not restore their newer versions. Different file versions are attributed to the same file only if their names are identical to that of the original file. This is why a file that has been renamed in local storage will not be considered to be a new version of the previously named file. When this option is enabled, you can also specify whether to restore only newer file versions or all files regardless of their modification time.

Note that these options apply only if you restore data to the initial instance

  • Restore NTFS permissions When a backup is configured to store NTFS permissions assigned to files and folders, you can enable this option to restore these permissions along with the selected files. To learn more, refer to the NTFS Permissions article.
