Overview

SEP sesam provides three basic restore types: complete, generation and selective restore. The restore type is specified when configuring a restore task in the Activities -> Restore.

Restore types

The following restore types are available:

Complete restore
A process by which an entire saveset is restored – all the files of a saveset are selected and restored.
Selective restore
Only a subset of a saveset's files is selected – only selected parts of data on the saveset, such as individual files and directories, are restored. Note that as of v. 4.4.3 Beefalo, the Mount saveset option (for restoring single files by mounting) is only available in the Expert UI mode. So if you run the GUI in Basic or Advanced UI mode, you first have to change the mode to Expert, as described in Selecting UI mode.
Generation restore
All generations of backed-up files, including differential or incremental backup files, can be browsed for and selected for restore. SEP sesam automatically switches to the generation view in which all the generations of the files are presented. The selection list displays all files since the last full backup.
