Find Files vs Restore


Recommended Posts

Hello, I too am new to Retrospect.

I back up our job folders numerically and now I need to retrieve a job from the back up tape. If I go into Find Files it finds the folder plus 1 item in that folder, and this is all it will restore. If I use the Restore option it will find the folder plus the other 30 items in the folder and resotes all. What am I doing wrong? Retrospect 7 on Windows 2003.


Thanks for any advise!

I'm guessing that when using Find File, Retro is finding the file you specified. When using Find File, Retro only shows the files specified. When doing a restore, Retro shows all files in the snapshot.


If in Find Files you specifiy a folder, Retro will show you all the files in the folders that match what you specified.


Does this fit your situation?
