    I am running Paragon Backup free in Windows 7 64 bit. I cannot seem to find out if it is possible to restore individual files instead of the entire image. Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Sure its possible. Using the vertical tab on the left, "Volume Explorer" under the Desk View, you can open the selected image, select the file you want to restore and by r/clicking the file, "export" it to ANY location you want, including the original location.

    I looked for "Volume Explorer", but on my vertical tab there is no "Volume Explorer". Attached is an image of all I have. Maybe "Volume Explorer" is only in the paid version.

    Hi,

    Try "Transfer Files". Browse to archive, dble click on .pbf inside archive to expand it, and keep expanding till you get the files you want. (Dble click or click the little cross next to each partition\folder )

    Anderson2,

    Paragon Backup & Recovery Free allows 3 ways to restore files from archive:
    (1) Using built-in Volume Explorer
    1. In Disk view select Volume Explorer tab
    Please note: If Volume Explorer is absent in ‘Disk View’, it is also available from ‘Archives’ tab and works the same way
    2. Navigate to the archive folder
    3. Double-click *.PBF file. It will open archived data in tree-view
    4. Right-click the required file from the list and select ‘Export’
    5. It will open Wizard where you should select the destination and click ‘OK’
    6. Wait until operation will be completed
    (2) Using File Transfer Wizard (this tool is also available on Recovery CD)
    1. In the Main Menu select Tools -> File Transfer Wizard
    2. In the Wizard click Next
    3. Navigate to the archive folder
    4. Double-click *.PBF file. It will open archived data in tree-view
    5. Select the required file/folder and click the green arrow button to copy it to clipboard
    6. Click Next.
    7. Select where to save file: Local/Network Drive or CD/DVD, click Next
    8. Specify the location (or select CD/DVD Burning device), click Next
    9. Set option ‘Overwrite existing files’ if needed, click Next
    10. Verify transfer summary information, click Next.
    11. Click Finish to complete the Wizard.
    12. Wait until operation will be completed
    13. Click Close
    (3) Using ‘Restore File From Archive’ option
    1. Go to Archives tab.
    2. Right-click the required archive and select ‘Restore File from Archive’
    Please note: If Archive is not listed in Archive Database, you can add it by clicking ‘Add Archive to Database’ button
    3. It will open File Transfer Wizard
    4. Select the required file/folder and click the green arrow button to copy it to clipboard
    5. Click Next.
    6. Select where to save file: Local/Network Drive or CD/DVD, click Next
    7. Specify the location (or select CD/DVD Burning device), click Next
    8. Set option ‘Overwrite existing files’ if needed, click Next
    9. Verify transfer summary information, click Next.
    10. Click Finish to complete the Wizard.
    11. Wait until operation will be completed.
    12. Click Close.

    Thank you Mech_An for the detailed report. I hate to belabor the point but is it possible that this feature is not available in the free version?
    Method 1:
    As I previously wrote, there is no Volume Explorer in my free version

    Method 2 (File Transfer Wizard):
    Double-clicking on any of the archive pbfs does not provide a file list. I have tried several, including archives produced by this version 10.2

    Double clicking on any archive does not produce a file list. And, yes, I checked the archive integrity and there were no errors.

    Method 3 (Using ‘Restore File From Archive’ option):
    I double clicked both in the bottom main window and also tried in the top right window. No file list appears, even after waiting a long time.

    So maybe this feature is not available in the free version?

    Volume Explorer exists in Archive tab - next to Archive details window:
