Restoring Data

Step-by-Step Instructions: Restoring Data

We know the sinking feeling you get the instant you realize an important file or folder has been deleted. That's why FilesAnywhere offers a way for you to retrieve deleted data and place it safely back into your account. How's that for peace of mind? Data Restore comes standard with every FilesAnywhere account, and above all, is extremely easy to navigate. Below you'll find instructions on how to use Data Restore. 

Let's Get Started:

1. Login to your FilesAnywhere account.

2. Click the Tools tab. 


3. Under the Services section, click on Data Restore.


4. Select a date to review files and folders backed up the morning of that day.  (see below for details on backup scheduling)


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.

Note: If a file had versioning enabled, then when restored, the versions applicable to the snapshot date will also be restored to the system VersionHistory folder.

6. Click the Return to the Main button to return to your folder tree.

Important Information About Data Restore

  • Data is backed up with a snapshot once a day.
  • If the creation and deletion of data occur between snapshots, there is no method to recover those files or folders.  The files need to have existed long enough to be picked up by the snapshot that is run each day in order to be recovered.
  • The data will be permanently deleted and not recoverable if it passes beyond the scope of the snapshots.
  • Snapshots currently span 60 days
