Doing an Object Level Restore - Physical Imaging Rapid Recovery

With an Image backup, you have the option to restore individual files and folders from the backup using the "Object-Level" option.  When restoring files and folders using the object-level capabilities, the restore works the same way as a File and Folder restore, only the data is restored from an Image backup.  Also, object-level restores are intended for short-term retrieval and should not be counted on to restore older files and folder; for this, a File and Folder backup set would be appropriate.  This guide will show you how to perform an object-level restore.



  1. Log into the management portal and navigate to the computer account you want to restore from.

  2. Go to the Restore tab and click on the  button next to Physical Imaging.

  3. Pick the Object-Level Restore option and the top.  Then, choose the volumes, revision date, and files/folders you want to restore.

    Click Next to continue with the restore.

  4. On the Destination page, choose to restore to the original location or an alternate one.  Then, choose whether restored files will replace existing files, be renamed, or not be restored at all if there is a conflict.

    Click Next to go to the Advanced tab.

  5. Select which restore options you would like to use, including whether NTFS file permissions, file attributes, and last modified dates will be restored along with the restored files.

    Hit Next to see a summary of the restore or select Restore to begin the restore job.
