1 of my 6 HDD's died, how to perform the restoration

Postby jetfx » Mon Sep 07, 2015 10:55 pm

Hello,

One of my hdd's died on me, i have the backup in an external HDD "mirror mode backup" that covers 4 of the HDD's and the one it died.

So here its the question. i have the new HDD installed with same name as the old drive. "data3" if i open now my fbackup
and hit restore will it only write the missing "data 3" files? or it will rewrite the data of the other 4 drives too? i can't do that its over 6TB of data.

if so, how can i avoid fbackup from writing on the other hdd's, or should i copy the files from the backup hdd manually into my new HDD.

Thank you.

Hi,

If all 4 hard disks were sources for the same backup job, when you restore the backup all files will be restore.
In such a case, you can specify which sources to restore in "Restore Wizard".
After you press Restore, in the new open window, select the restore location (new empty hdd) and select:
- "Choose/filter files and restore the latest version" and
- "Restore excluded and deleted files" options.
Then press Next and select the drive/folders you want to restore.
