NOTE: As with any Backup solution, it is strongly recommended that you thoroughly test the solution in a non-production environment prior to running any operations against your production data. Make note of all backed up and restored objects, their behavior, the process itself, scheduled operations as well as the results. If at any time you have additional questions about objects and functionality, please open a ticket with support for additional information.
The application consists of three primary panes (1) Navigator, (2) Contents Area, (3) Backup Navigator Area. A set of windows is automatically generated when Loading or Downloading operation is performed.
The picture above represents the default arrangement for these panes.
NOTE: We have found this to be the ideal configuration, but the individual panes may be rearranged, minimized or maximized.
The objects displayed in the Navigator area are limited to sites, sub-sites, lists and libraries. Double-clicking on any of the sites, lists or libraries will trigger the application to display the content for that object in the Contents pane. In addition, a set of options is available from right-click menus and the ribbon at the top of the screen.
The Content area displays the actual data inside a list or library. Double click on any list or site in the backup set and you can select and restore individual items.
·In order to select (or deselect) multiple items located directly below each other, click on the first item and then holding the SHIFT key, click on the last item. All the files located between the two items will be highlighted.
·In order to select (or deselect) multiple items which are not located next to each other, hold down the CTRL key and select individual files.
Located in the top left-hand corner is a breadcrumb definition of the list or library, whose content is represented in the window.
