Restore Files Task Options:
- Overwrite Existing Files - When enabled, any existing files or directories with the same name will be overwritten even if they are newer.
- Encrypt file data over network - Encrypts all data in an encrypted tunnel over the network during the restore. This setting is enabled by default. Disabling this setting can provide a small increase in speed for file restores.
- Restore to Alternate Location - Specify a path for the Host to restore the files to. The complete path and directory structure of all selected files will be created under the path specified for this setting. If the specified path does not exist, it will be created.
Files and folders are restored with their full path underneath the chosen location. For example, if "C:\SomeFolder\SomeFile.txt" is selected for restore and "C:\SomeOtherFolder" is entered as the alternate location, the file will be restored as: "C:\SomeOtherFolder\SomeFolder\SomeFile.txt"
- Restore to Alternate Host - Select an Alternate Host to restore the files to. Select the Host from the drop-down menu of other Hosts you have Admin rights on. Alternatively, you can enter a Host Name or the IP Address of the Alternate Host. The Host must be running the "Righteous CDP Agent" and must be configured to accept requests from the CDP Server.
See Activating the Agent for more information.
