If the data on your servers has been encrypted by ransomware, you can create restoration tasks to restore the encrypted data and reduce losses. This topic describes how to create a restoration task, view the task status, purchase additional anti-ransomware capacity, and delete backup data.
- The value of recoverable versions in the protection policy is not zero.
- The Security Center agent is enabled.
Security Center backs up the server data based on the protection policy you have created. If you have used the recommended policy, you can select a version that has been backed up to restore the data on the current server.
- Log on to the Security Center console.
- In the left-side navigation pane, choose .
- On the Anti-Virus page, click Add anti-ransomware policies.
- On the General anti-ransomware solutions page, find the protection policy that is applied to a restoration task, and then click .
- Find the server where data will be restored, and click Restore in the Actions column.You can also click the number in the Recoverable Versions column to go to the Restoration page.
- On the Restoration page, set the following parameters: Select a restored version, Select a restored
file, and Recovery directory address.Sample values of the Recovery directory address parameter in a Windows and Linux system are as follows:
Note The Recovery directory address parameter specifies the folder where you want to restore the server data. The backup data is restored in the cloud. After you create a restoration task, the files will be restored to the Recovery directory address. If the specified directory does not exist, Security Center cannot perform the restoration task. We recommend that you specify a valid directory.
- Windows: D:\Documents\Restore
- Linux: /home/Restore
- Click OK.After you create a restoration task, you will receive the following message: The Restore task is created.
- View restoration task statusOn the Restore Tasks tab, you can view the restoration task status, the total number of restored files, and the number of files that failed to be restored. If a restoration task fails, you can view the causes of the failure. If the restoration task fails due to an invalid directory, you must recreate a restoration task to restore data again.
- Purchase additional anti-ransomware capacityInsufficient anti-ransomware capacity leads to backup failures. We recommend that you purchase sufficient anti-ransomware capacity to prevent backup failures. On the General anti-ransomware solutions page, you can view the used and total anti-ransomware capacity. To purchase additional anti-ransomware capacity, click Upgrade and specify the capacity on the Upgrade page. You can also delete backup files for additional space.
- Delete backup filesNote Deleted backup files cannot be restored. Proceed with caution.You can delete backup files that are no longer required. In the Recoverable Version pane, find the files that you want to delete and click Delete. After backup files are deleted, free space is released correspondingly.
