Re: Restore single file
There are 3 ways to extract content or files from a backup:
File Transfer Wizard
• Click Tools, File Transfer Wizard.
• Click Next, Browse to your backup file on the right.
• Double click the .PBF (if you backed up a partition by itself), or the .000 file that corresponds to the partition you wish to enter (if you backed up the entire disk at once). The name will be similar to My_Backup0000p.000 for the first (0) partition, then My_Backup0001p.000 for the second (1) partition, and My_Backup0002p.000 for the third (2) partition.
• After you double click, wait a moment. It could take up to 2 minutes for a backup over 100GB before you will see the + icon expand beneath the file. Usually it takes about 2 seconds.
• Expand the + to see the contents inside the backup.
• Highlight what you need and click the left arrow in the middle to place the item(s) on the clipboard.
• Click next to select a destination to restore to.
• This feature is available from both Windows and Recovery CD’s.
• On the main screen (Disk View) there are 3 vertical tabs in the middle of the main window and the left hand side bar.
• Open the Volume Explorer Tab.
• Browse to your backup file and double click it to enter. In the volume explorer you can double click the .PBF file regardless of the type of backup. If you backed up an enter drive, it will expand all of the partitions beneath the PBF, or just the individual partition from the 000. This is slightly different (a little more convenient) than the File Transfer Wizard.
• This option is only supported from Windows or the WinPE Recovery CD.
• Open the ‘Archives’ tab next to Disk View and Scheduled Tasks.
• Change the drop-down in the middle to ‘Show Partitions’.
• On the bottom half, locate the backup you wish to mount.
• If the backup is not on the list (usually because it wasn’t backed up at this system) click the green + to browse and add the file.
• Right click and choose ‘Mount the selected archive’.
• Choose a drive letter.
• Open My Computer – Your backup is now accessible as if it were a read-only hard drive.
• This option is only supported from inside Windows.
