Restore files to different drive location


  • Using SBS Essentials 2011. We need to restore some individual files (Word, Excel, PDF documents). Is it possible to restore them to a drive location on the server different from their original location?

    Thank you.

  • Hi porbar,

    Based on your requirement, if you have back up by using Windows Server Backup, you will achieve this target by using the Recovery Wizard.

    Please locate to Administrator Tools and select Windows Server Backup. In Actions pane, click Recover. In the process of running Recovery Wizard, you can click Files and folders on the Select recovery type page. You will be able to select the specific files.

    On the Specify recovery options page, under Recovery destination, click Another location, you can Browse to select or type path directly.

    For more details, please refer to the following article.

    If anything I misunderstand, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,
