|Item Copy Options|
|Include Permissions - restore permissions for the specific content.|
Include All Versions - include all versions of the specific content.
Include most recent Versions - include only the most recent specified number of versions of the specific content.
Enable Azure Turbo Mode - When enabled, this option utilizes Microsoft's SharePoint Online Migration API to increase the migration performance and throughput. A recommendation for optimal use of this API is larger sets of data; the more content, the better the throughput. Because this API uses Azure storage as a staging area for the migration, it requires that you provide an Azure storage location. The options are to either utilize Microsoft supplied storage or to provide your own Azure storage location. If you wish to use your own Azure account, you must provide both the Azure Account Name as well as the corresponding Access Key. If you cannot supply this information, please search our online Knowledge Base, User Manual, or contact Support for additional information before proceeding or consider using the Microsoft Supplied Storage option. For more information please see the Azure Turbo Mode section.
Send Notifications - provide an email to which notifications will be sent regarding the progress of the Backup Restore.
7.Once you have configured all of your settings, click Finish to complete the restore.
Documents can be restored in-place or documents can be restored out-of-place. If a document is restored to any location where a document with the same name already exists, the restore operation will overwrite/replace the current SharePoint document. If a document with that name does not exist, then it will be restored from the backup as a new document.
When restoring a list item, the operation will create a new item in the selected location. This means that if the item already exists in this list, a second (or more) item will be created with potentially the same metadata.
