Granular Restore within a day

Hi,
I am currently testing the product.

My question is:
If I am doing multiple backups within a day on a hourly basis and want to restore to exact one of these?

I do not have any option in the restore panel to select a specific backup within a day.

Hi,

After you press Restore, please select "Choose/filter files and restore any version" option. Press Next twice and you will be able to select the exact backup based on the execution date and hour.

Hi, thanks for the answer.
It works !

Would be great if the 'To what date ...' Form would show the type of the backups (Full, incr, ...).

Thanks

Hi,

"To what date" feature does not address a single backup version.
It could be you have a folder with 4 files backed up each day using the incremental backup type.
Let's say:
1 file is backed up in the 1st day of the month and it does not change anymore. So it is included only in the first full backup
2 files are changed weekly and they will be included only in the Friday executions.
1 file is changed daily and will be included in every day backup.
When you want to restore the files as of date X (which could be a Monday), the 4 files are retrieved from the corresponding backup versions (Full and incrementals) in order to recreate that folder as it was in day X.
