Hoiw do I restore files from an earlier backup?

Postby rgs123 » Fri Dec 09, 2016 3:30 pm

Greetings...I have backups from the most recent three days. They appear as zip files in my directory 180_C, 181_C, 182_C. I want to be able to restore a file from the oldest backup - not the latest version. When I try to restore the file the only option I am given is to restore from the latest version. How would I go about restoring a file from the oldest backup in my directory - not the latest? Thanks.

Hi,

Please note FBackup keeps only the latest backup version. When you use the Full backup type, the old backup is overwritten by the new backup.
If for some reasons the old file could not be deleted, it cannot be used to restore from it. You can restore only from the latest version.

If you want to keep track of multiple backup versions, please use our commercial edition: Backup4all.
