    The Backup content page appears.

      • When objects such as User objects are updated, end users will receive notifications, which may not be desirable.
    • To include child objects in the restore, from the Child objects to restore list, select the child objects.
      • To exclude some child objects, select the Exclude children check box, and then in the Children to exclude box, select the child objects that you want to exclude.
