You can restore files that are backed up on an HBR backup client to a local NAS file system. You can also restore files that are backed up on another backup client in the same backup vault to the NAS file system.

Prerequisites

The local NAS file system is backed up. For more information, see Back up an on-premises NAS file system.

Create a restore job

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Backup > NAS Backup.
  3. On the left side of the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. On the NAS Backup page, click Local NAS.
  5. On the NAS Instance tab, click the jia icon next to a NAS file system that is backed up.
  6. Click a backup and click Restore.
    You can also click Browse to view all the files on the client that you can restore.
  7. In the Create Subscription dialog box, set the following parameters and click OK.
    1. Select the files that you want to restore and click Next.
      The following restore policies are supported:
      • Include All Files: All files on the client are restored.
      • Include Files or Exclude Files: You can select or enter the paths of directories or files that you want to include in or exclude from the restore job. HBR restores files on the client based on the specified restore policy.
        • Select the files that you want to include in or exclude from the restore job

          You can select files by using one of the following two methods:

          • Browse all the files that are backed up from the NAS file system and select the files that you want to include in or exclude from the restore job.
          • Enter the file names in the Search box and turn on Advanced.

            To search for files, you can specify one or more of the following conditions: Search Type, Min Size, Max Size, and Modify Time. For example, if you want to restore a file whose name is test.txt, enter test.txt in the Search box and click Search. After you click Search, the test.txt file is returned.

        • Specify the files that you want to include in or exclude from the restore job

          Enter one path in each line and make sure that each path starts with the lowest-level directory in the source path that is backed up.

          • Restore specific files

            For example, if you want to restore the file.txt and abc.png files in the folder/test/data directory, enter the following paths:

            /data/file.txt
            /data/abc.png
          • Restore specific directories

            For example, if you want to restore all the files and subdirectories in the folder/test/data directory, enter the following path:

            /data/
          • Restore files or directories that match a condition including wildcards

            For example, if you want to restore the files and subdirectories whose names are prefixed with abc in the folder/test/data directory, enter the following path:

            /data/abc*
    2. In the Restore Destination step, set the Destination Type parameter to Local NAS. Select an existing NAS file system to which you want to restore files, and then click Next.
      You can also add a new NAS instance to restore the files.
    3. In the Destination Path step, specify the Restore Path Type and Destination Path parameters.
    After a restore job is created, you can view the job progress in the Status column on the Restore Jobs tab.
