Renaming and relocating data during restore

To restore a file or directory without overwriting the existing copy, you can rename or relocate the item during restore.

In the Rename/Relocate dialog box, provide the following information:
Rename: Type a new name for the selected item. When specifying the filename, include the extension. Otherwise, the file is restored with no extension. For example, when renaming the file “old.txt,” if you type “new” in the Rename box, the file is restored without the “.txt” extension.
Relocate: Type the full path to the new restore location.
NOTE: To rename an item without changing its location, use only the Rename option. To change the restore location without changing the name, use only the Relocate option. Use both options if you want to rename the item and change its location.
