Advanced Restore Options (General)

Use this dialog box to access additional restore options. Note that all the options described in this help may not be available and only the options displayed in the dialog box are applicable to the component installed on the client.

Automatically Detect Regular Expressions

This option allows you to use wildcard characters to specify the patterns for files and folders to be included in the restore. When selected, the system will recognize supported regular expressions (wildcards) in the specified Source Path.  When cleared, the system will read the specified Source Path as literal.

This option is selected by default for direct restore operations. For Browse and Restore operations, the option cannot be enabled as you are selecting definitive paths to restore.

Skip Errors and Continue

This option allows a restore job to continue regardless of media errors and outputs a file that lists the full path names of the files that failed to get restored.

Restore device files as regular files

This option allows you to restore the actual data in the device node file of the raw partition to a regular file system file.

Use Exact Index

This option allows you to associate the media with the most recent index available in the CommCell.

Skip MountPoint Restore

Specifies whether to filter out mount points that are part of the backup data during the file system restore. When enabled, the file system restore will filter out the mount points from the backed up data. When disabled, mount points will also be restored during the file system restore.

Recover Apple Resource Fork Data

Specifies whether to restore encoded Apple resource fork data to your non-Macintosh file system.

Delete files on disk before restore

Specifies whether the file or directory being restored has to be deleted on the destination client before the restore process overwrites it, when the Overwrite Files check box is selected in the Restore Options (General) tab.

For symbolic links, specifies whether the file or directory being restored overwrites the symbolic link in place on the destination client.

For example, back up a source file /dir1/f1 and perform an in-place restore to /dir1/f1, where f1 on the destination is a symbolic link pointing to /dir3/f1. With the Delete files on disk before restore option enabled, the destination file /dir1/f1 will be deleted before restoring the file.

Enforce Label Checking on Trusted Solaris

This option applies only to Solaris File System iDataAgent. This option specifies whether to check the label for the associated Solaris zone during a restore to a Trusted Solaris 10 system and therefore control whether the data will be restored to this system. If this option is enabled, this label is checked, and if the destination for the restored data is a zone other than the zone where the data was originally included, the restore will not complete successfully. If the option is disabled for this scenario, the data will be restored to the specified destination (zone).

This option is enabled by default if the destination client is a Solaris 10 client or higher except for scheduled restores following an upgrade, and it is not displayed if the source client is a non-Solaris client. The option is disabled for all other scenarios.
