Browsing Multiple Versions of a File for Windows File System Agent from the Command Line Interface

You can use the command line interface to view a particular backed up file version for restores.

If you perform a browse operation for a given time range browse, versions are shown across cycles.


  1. Download the input_version.xml file and save it on the computer from where the command will be run.
  2. Modify the XML template as per your setup.

    The following example lists the mandatory elements and sample values.

    <databrowse_BrowseRequest opType="Versions">
    <session/> <entity commCellId="2" clientName="imindexing33" subclientName="SC2"
    backupsetName="commandline" appName="Windows File System" _type_="0"/>
    <paths path="E:\SuperBRowse\SC2\Lemmatize\Intelligence.txt"/>
    <queries queryId="0" type="DATA"> </queries>
    <timeRange fromTime="2013-06-28 19:30:39" toTime="2013-08-27 19:30:39"/>
    <options restoreIndex="true"/>
    <paging skipNode="0" pageSize="1000" firstNode="0"/>
    <ma clientName="indexingstorage"/>
    <user userName="admin"/>
    <advOptions copyPrecedence="0"/>

  3. Change the XML element values.
  4. Run the following command from the software_installation_directory/Base folder.

    Make sure to provide the name and path of the output xml file in which you want to retrieve your browse results.

    qlist backupfiles -af input_function.xml -dpath output_template.xml

  5. Verify the results in the output_filter.xml.
