How to restore from historical backups i.e. old snapshots

Recommended Posts

Using the Restore Assistant, I can select the folders/files that I want to restore, but it only shows the most recent (one) backup.


If create a restore script manually, it can see the old backup jobs, but doesn't allow to select individual folders/files.


So my question is: how to restore certain folders/files without restoring everything from a historical backup?


Applicable reasons:

a. Folders/files were deleted before the last backup and need to restore them

b: Need to restore previous versions of files

I did. That how the manual restore script can see the multiple backup jobs. But like I said, the manual script doesn't allow to select folders/files, have to restore everything from that job.


The restore assistant doesn't list the old backup jobs retrieved.

There they are. Closing and re-opening the console fix the problem. Now all historical backups are listed in Restore Assistant window and I can select the folders/files I want.


So it's a bug, whether it's just display issue or whatever.


Thanks for helping.
