Restore data using the inSync Web


If your inSync administrator enables web restore for you, you can restore data from inSync Web. If your inSync administrator disables web restore for you, you can log on to inSync Web, but you must use inSync Client to start a restore operation. 

For restore, you can use Search to easily find and restore selected files. 


To restore data

  1. Open the inSync Web.
  2. On the inSync Web menu bar, click Data Sources. Your devices are displayed in the left pane.
  3. From the list of devices, click the device for which you want to view the snapshots.
  4. In the Snapshots list, click the snapshot from which you want to restore data.
  5. Select the files or folders that you want to restore, and click Restore Selected. Alternatively, you can use Search to search for files that you want to restore. 
    After you click Restore Selected, a Restore to Device window appears. The size of the data that you are going to restore is displayed in the Restore Data Size field.

    Note: You cannot restore files with the same names simultaneously.

  6. In the Restore to device window, provide the appropriate information for each field.
    Field Action
    Restore to device

    If you want to restore the data to the device's desktop, click Desktop.

    The inSync Client restores the data on the desktop in the following format:

    Wed Mar 11 12-15-39 2015\{{Desktop1}}\07_Oct_2014

    Where Wed Mar 11 is the date of the restore, 12-15-39 is the time of the restore, 2015 is the year of the restore, Desktop1 in the folder configured for backup, 07_Oct_2014 is the snapshot that you restored from the storage.

    Restore location

    To restore the data to the folder from which it was backed up, select Original Location. This option is available only when you are restoring data to the device from which it was backed up. 
    If you want to restore the data to a custom location, select Custom Location and then specify the location in the Specify Location box.
  7. Click Restore Selected. The data restore starts. A restore window appears. You can view the progress of data restore.

Note: If you change the language in the inSync Web, the display of content within the Data Sources page updates accordingly. However, the file name or folder name is not translated. For more information, see About language support for inSync Web.
