  1. I am surprised this is not an obvious functionality. Scenario: - Existing drive, good backups - For !@#$% reasons, a chunk of an NTFS partition was literally zero'd out at a low level - Result: files are all in place but I guarantee their contents have changed. Consider it bit rot on a massive scale What I need: - Restore essentially all backed-up files, ignoring the fact that the metadata matches perfectly - In other words, I want to do a restore-with-overwrite. - Important note: I do NOT want to simply restore the volume if at all possible, because there are many new/changed files not in the backup. I can't find a way to do this. What am I doing wrong? Mostly, it auto-deselects all the files that appear to already be there (matching in size and date stamps). Any ideas much appreciated. I'm about ready to do the obvious/pain-in-the-neck workaround... - Find all new files and copy elsewhere and/or - Delete all files that aren't new THANKS! Pete
