    YES and YES.

    Several ways to do it, depending what product you have:



    How to browse backup archive and restore individual files?


    (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.

    (4) Using ‘Mount the Selected Archive’ option (for 32x Windows only)

    1. Go to Archives tab.
    2. Right-click the required archive and select ‘Mount the Selected Archive’ option
    3. Assign Drive Letter and click Yes
    4. The Archive will appear in Windows Explorer as a Hard Disk Drive. You can copy files/folders from this drive as usually.
