5. Select the files or folders that you wish to restore and then click the Restore button.

Note: You may choose a single file or folder, or multiple files and folders, to restore at any given time. Folders containing multiple versions of a file will display each version and allow you to choose the version you wish to restore. Depending upon the amount of information you have chosen to retrieve, this action may take a few moments to complete.

Important Information About Data Restore

  • Data is backed up with a snapshot every morning at 5:00am Eastern Time.
  • If you create files or folders after 5:00am, then delete it before 5:00am the next day, there is no method to recover those files or folders.
  • The data will be permanently deleted and not recoverable if it passes beyond the scope of the snapshots.
