How can I restore files from a backup?

You can restore files from either your uncompressed or compressed backups.  Safe Data Backup is not needed in order to do any restore operation.

Uncompressed Restore
To restore any files/folders from your uncompressed backup use your favorite file copying program, such as Windows Explorer.  Copy the files/folders you want to restore from the backup destination, back to their original locations, or any alternate location you want.

Compressed Restore
To restore any files/folder from a compressed backup use your favorite unzipping utility, such as WinZip or Windows Explorer.  The compressed ZIP files are standard ZIP files that can be opened with any unzipping program.

See Backup Hierarchy in the documentation for a description of the folder hierarchy in the backup destination.
