Map File Format for File System Restores

The map file is a comma separate value (CSV) file type that contains 2 entries per line:

  • The source file, or location
  • The destination file, or location

Note: If the destination file path does not exist when you start the restore, the Commvault software creates the file path when it runs the restore.

The file format is:

"source_path_folder", "destination_path_folder"

There must be no whitespaces between the quotes and the comma.

The table lists the valid map file entries:
