Guided restore

Restore Wizards guide you through a process that is designed specifically for the type of data that you want to restore. For example, when you restore application data, you are prompted only with the options that apply to that application's data. The Restore Wizard guides you through restoring an entire server, files, and folders, volumes, and application data.

  • Restores are initiated by Restore Wizards that guide you through a process that is designed specifically for the type of data that you want to restore.
