The Extract Wizard helps you restore data from a backup to a specified folder. With this wizard, you can select the System State components you want to extract from the computer’s backup and specify the destination folder for the extracted files.
The wizard has the following steps:
Use this page to view a list of computers for which backups are available and to select a backup and System State components in the backup.
- Locate the backup under computer name. Provides a list of computers for which backups are available and allows you to select a backup to perform a restore.

A backup entry includes the date and time when the backup was created, and displays the backup age in days. By selecting check boxes under a backup entry, you can extract individual components of the System State. The list only includes the backups that are registered in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory configuration database.

In the Extract Wizard, you can use backups created by applications that store backups in Microsoft Tape Format (MTF), such as Windows Backup or Veritas Backup Exec.
