simple question on restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • so i have a pretty naive question on restore:

    I am running WHS and backing up several PCs.  have been using for several months and all is fine.  had need to restore a folder so went into the past backups, opened up the archive, and then the instructions say to just "copy the files or folder to a folder on the PC"....I was expecting to have to do some sort of restore "process"....am in understanding this correctly that you just pull over (ie copy) the folders or files you want restored onto your client PC and over the top of the corrupted folders?  in other words, simply copy the folders from the WHS to the same place and over the top of the folders on the client just as if you were doing a simple file copy from one PC to another?

  • I think the instructions are pretty clear. :)

    Yes, it's that simple. Using the single file restore mode, you just copy from the virtual drive that Windows Home Server presents the backup as.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
