Understanding the Find Options Window

Find provides an easy-to-use convenience to search and restore data.

You can open the Find window from the subclient level or from the Job History window.

Using the Search Results Tab to Select Objects to Restore

The Search Results tab shows the results of a Find operation. Using Find, you can search through backed-up a file or folder information based on its metadata, such as name, modification date, size, or backup date. Data that is excluded by filtering does not appear in the search results.

Notes:

  • All selections of folders are recursive.
  • If you sort the Find results by clicking a column heading on the Search Results tab, any selections that you have made will be lost.

The selection icons indicate these conditions:

The object is not selected for restoration.

The object is selected for restoration. If the object is a folder, all child objects are selected also.

Find results work differently when a Content Indexing job has been run after the last backup job, as follows:

  • If Content Indexing is enabled on the client, and jobs are Content Indexed, Find results are displayed from Content Indexed data.
  • If Content Indexing is not enabled, Find results are displayed from backed-up file and folder metadata.
