Restore Closes the wizard window and starts the restore process.

Data to restore tab

This tab lets you select files and folders to be restored.

The tab consists of three areas: folder tree, file viewer and the area that displays a full path of selected folders and files (hidden by default).


  Back Navigates back.
  Forward Navigates forward.
  Up Navigates up.
  Refresh Refreshes folders and files.
  View all subfolders If selected, this option allows you to view the content of the current folder and all its subfolders in the list of files.
Archive Allows you to select the date of the archive and thus to restore the files on that date. It can also be done using the menu item Versions of ... on the popup menu.
Show and handle deleted files If checked, allows you to select and restore deleted files.
File name Allows you to specify a wildcard to search for files.
Search Starts searching for files.
Reset Cancels a file search.

File filter tab

This tab lets you edit filters for including or excluding specific file types to be restored.

Note there is the difference between the filters and exclusion masks from the previous tab. Filters are applied to files in any folder, exclusion masks are applied only to files from a specific folder and its subfolders.


Included files
Include all files This option lets you include all files into the synchronization process.
Include files that match specified masks This option lets you include only specified file types into the restoration process.
Include only files with archive bit This option allows you to include in the restoration process only files with the archive attribute.
Excluded files
Do not exclude files This option does not exclude any files from the restoration process. The option is checked by default.
Exclude files that match specified masks This option lets you specify file types to exclude from the restoration process.
Excluded file attributes
  • Read-only file
  • Hidden file
  • System file
This option lets you exclude files
  • with the "read-only" attribute
  • with the "hidden" attribute
  • with the "system" attribute

To add a filter, you need to click the Add button. This opens the File Mask Editor.

The File Mask Editor lets you select the file type to include (or exclude) into the restoration process. The so-called "If exists" filter specifies a special condition to include or exclude files if there are files with the same name and specified extension in the current folder.

Target paths tab

This tab lets you select the target folder in which the selected files will be restored.

Advanced options tab

This tab allows you to change advanced recovery options.
