Restoring Kubernetes Persistent Volumes, Files and Folders Out of Place

You can restore the Kubernetes persistent volumes or specific files and folders out of place.

When you restore files or folders to a PersistentVolumeClaim (PVC) that is attached to a running pod, an application restart might be required to access the newly restored data in the application.


For OpenShift, verify that the applications are not running when you perform a restore to a PVC.
