Restore of Single Files and Folders

In Office Backup you can restore either a full backup set or any single file within a given backup set. To restore a single file from a backup copy, you need to determine which backup task was responsible for backing up this file.

If the backup task was created for this single file only, and does not contain other files, you can restore it in a regular way by either restoring it automatically or creating a separate restore task for this file. Read more.

However, if the single file that you need to restore is a part of a larger backup set which contains other files as well, you need to follow these instructions.

  1. Launch Novosoft Office Backup by clicking on the program icon.
  2. In the task view box of the program main window, select the backup task that is responsible for backing up the single file.
