Backup Search

In order to search for content within a backup project or a specific snapshot (Exchange Online backup search coming soon) two options are provided, Quick Search and Advanced Search.  
 
To use either search mode first begin by selecting the location in the Backup Navigator for which to perform the search.  This location may either be an entire backup project or a specific snapshot from within a project.  Once this location is selected, enter the search value into the Quick Search entry field or select Advanced Search from the context menu.

Quick Search is located in the toolbar above the Backup Navigator (using the default layout) and provides a quick, easy method to locate a file based on its file name.  Using Quick Search you can define the exact file name "Important Document - Do not delete", partial file name "Important Document" or use wildcards (*) "*Do not delete*".

Advanced Search is located by right clicking on a selected backup project and selecting Advanced Search.
backup search3
Advanced Search offers additional metadata properties (names, dates) and conditions (before, after, contains, etc.) to more easily locate specific objects based on these advanced parameters.

Search Results

The search results will appear in the Search Results tab, located in the same section as the Backup Navigator, where all occurrences of the objects will be presented as well as the location in which they were found.

hyper backup 16
 
Include Sub-Sites - Enable this option to include all sub-sites of the current site in this operation.
Include Site Permissions - This option will copy source site permissions to the target site. If the source site permissions are inherited, then the target site permissions will also be set to inherited. If the source site permissions are unique, these unique permissions will be copied to the target site.
 
List Copy Options
hyper backup 17

info

NOTE: Restore would be with all lists, list settings, content types, columns and content

Include Permissions - copy the permissions associated with the content within this list/library

Include Versions - copy the version of the content included within the list/library. You can specify if you would like to include all versions of the content, or whether you would like to include the most recent number of specified versions of the content.

Include List Permissions - select this option to copy the site permissions.

Include List Views - select this option if you would like to copy the number of views of the site.

Advanced Options
restore backup16

Overwrite if file exists - In a version library, selecting the "Overwrite if File Exists" option does not overwrite the files already in SharePoint. SharePoint will append these to the list as new versions.

Incremental Copy - Incremental or delta migrations are an important and powerful option for large or ongoing projects and migration validation. Once enabled this option will migrate new, modified or versioned content from the source to the destination, capturing changes made by users during the previous migration.

The value entered into the "Last" field will limit the amount of content examined to the time period specified, starting at present time.

To perform an incremental migration, enter the amount of time to include and select the appropriate time period in days, weeks or months. Incremental migration is designed to be used in scenarios where the destination is not being modified.

To perform a delta migration, enter zero in the field and select days as the time period. Delta migration is designed to be used in scenarios where both the source and destination may be modified during the course of the migration. Please note that a delta migration compares dates between source and destination to determine which content to include, so it will take more time to process than an incremental migration.

info

NOTE: The Overwrite if File Exists parameter will be disabled if this option is selected.

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 your settings, click Finish.

info

NOTE: By default the restore process will put all the content, metadata, site/list structure, permissions and other supported objects back into the original backup location.
