Performing Salesforce Record-level Restore Operations

You can restore a set of Salesforce records to a file system, or to a Salesforce instance. This restore restores the selected records of the selected object. You can only restore records from the latest backup cycle.

If your Salesforce environment has the Persons Account feature, then make sure that you select the Account Object when you want to restore the Person account records. You must make this selection even when you have deleted the account record from the contacts. For more information about the person account feature, go to the Salesforce help site, Person Accounts.

If you have triggers or workflows that you can edit and the restore destination is a Salesforce instance, then you can have the Commvault software disable the workflows or triggers before the restore, and then activate them after the restore completes (Disable triggers and rules check box). Use this option to improve load performance and minimize errors.
