Using Self-Service Recovery

The Metalogix Backup for SharePoint Self-Service Recovery feature lets SharePoint site collection administrators and other users download SharePoint library items from Metalogix Backup for SharePoint to their hard disk. The administrator must install the Self-Service Recovery feature when configuring Metalogix Backup for SharePoint for the farm.

When you use the Self-Service Recovery feature, select the date range that Metalogix Backup for SharePoint uses when you view or search backup sets. You can search for documents in the backup by the full or partial name of the item that you want to find. You can also browse the site collection to view files.

The administrator can configure the maximum number of files that are visible when you browse or search for files. The larger the number of files that appear, the more time that it takes SharePoint to display them. Your administrator may restrict the number or files that appear in order to improve SharePoint performance. If you perform a search, use a more-restrictive search that displays fewer items.

What files can a user view and download from the Self-Service Recovery feature?

Site collection administrators can always use the Self-Service Recovery feature to download content from backup sets. Members of the site collection administrators group can view and download any files that Metalogix Backup for SharePoint has backed-up in the current site collection. Site collection administrators can also delegate permission to download backed-up content to specific users.

The content that delegated users can see and download depends on the following:

·The current permissions that the user has for the content.

·The permissions the user had at the time the backup was created.

To view the contents of a site or a library, the user must either have current access to the site or library, or the user must have had access at the time that the content was backed-up.

To download a backed-up file, the user must have current access and also access at the time that the file was backed-up. If either set of permissions does not allow access, the user cannot download the backed-up content.
