    • To restore the most recent backup, click Show latest backups.
    • To restore a backup from a specific date, click Show backups as of a specific date, select a date, and then select the backup.
    • To restore a backup from a date range, click Show backups for a date range, select a date range, and then select the backup.
  5. Select the users whose user accounts you want to restore, and then click Restore.

    The Restore options dialog box appears.

  6. Specify how you want to restore the data:
    • Destination server: The data is restored to the server. The default location is the location from where the data was backed up.
    • Restore to original folder: (default) To perform an in-place restore operation, select this check box to restore data to the folder from which the data was backed up.
    • Overwrite if it already exists: To overwrite files and folders that are in the destination and have the same names as files and folders that you are restoring, select this option.

A restore job is created. You can monitor the job progress, kill the job, or suspend the job. For information about monitoring all the jobs in the Admin Console environment, see Jobs.
