You can restore files that are backed up on an HBR backup client to an on-premises server. You can also restore files that are backed up on another backup client in the same backup vault to the current backup client.

Prerequisites

The files on the on-premises server are backed up. For more information, see Back up files.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup > On-Premises File Backup.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. Select file backup as the backup type.
    • If you are not using the latest version of backup client, click Old Version on the On-Premises File Backup page.

    1. Set the restoration parameters and click Next.
      Parameter Description
      Restore Items The files or directories that you want to restore.
      • Include All Files: All files on the client are restored.
      • Include Files: Select the files or folders that you want to restore.

        You can also click Enter Paths to specify the files that you want to restore. In the text box, enter the paths to the folders or files that you want to restore. HBR restores files in the client based on the specified restore policy.

        In the text box, enter one path in each line and ensure that each path starts with the lowest-level folder in the directory that is backed up. For example, if the files in folder/test/data are backed up and you want to restore the file.txt and abc.png files in the data folder, enter the following paths:
        /data/file.txt
        /data/abc.png
      • Exclude Files: Select the files or folders that you do not want to restore.

        You can also click Enter Paths to specify the files that you do not want to restore. In the text box, enter the paths to the folders or files that you do not want to restore. You must enter the paths in the same format as you enter those of folders or files that you want to restore.
