The following is a recommended way to restore Windows files to Linux or Unix systems.
Restoring a file from a Windows system to a Linux or Unix system with default options will lead to the file being restored in "/usr/netvault/c:\ \ "
In most cases, this is not ideal.
The recommended way to restore the file is to use the relocate function.
When selecting the file from the restore window, right-click the file and choose the ‘Rename’ option. Then, check the ‘Relocate to’ checkbox, and enter the path you wish to restore to.
For example, if you select the file "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts", and enter the ‘Relocate to’ value as "/etc", then the file will be restored as "/etc/hosts".
Warning! Windows style file permissions will not be translated to Linux or Unix systems. The file will be restore with ownership of "root:root", and permissions of "000". Root level access is required to modify the permissions.
This does not apply to SNAP servers. Restores of Windows file system backups to SNAP servers is not supported.
