Restore one file only - no folders

Post by Rick the regular » Sun Oct 13, 2013 7:27 am

I perform backups daily with Backup4all. I have never needed to perform a restore, but yesterday I decided to test restoring one file using Backup4all. I was surprised when I checked the restore log that many (maybe all) of my folders were also restored. In fact, 18,677 folders were restored in addition to the single file that I wanted to restore. Is there an option that I should have specified so that only the file was restored?

How you told Backup4all to restore a single file? That seems to be the problem.

In order to restore a single file, please open Backup4all, go to Explore View, right click the file you want to restore and select Restore.
