Restoring Data

You need to allocate sufficient on-premises storage capacity space for data restoration.

Creating a restore task

Restoring a task allows you to restore the data from the cloud to on-premises. Restoration helps to provide high availability of data hence you can restore this data whenever required after the storage failure.

You can restore a task by day, folder, range, or all.

  • By Folder: Restores data from the specific folder or files from the cloud.

  • By Day: Restore data based on the file's last modified date. For example,  if you want to restore data for one day, it will restore data from the previous day to the current system time.

  • By Range: Restore data based on the last modified date of the file.

    For example, if you select the range from 06-Jun-2022 to 07-Jun-2022, in that case, the data is restored from 06-Jun-2022 00:00:01 to 07-Jun 00:00:00.

  • All: Restores all the data from the cloud

  1. On the left-hand menu, select Data Mover, and then select Restore.

    • Restore ACL: It allows you to restore data from Lyve Cloud with its original permission, the same as file permissions at the source path. You can enable Restore ACL from the Data Mover setting section. For more information, see Updating Data Mover settings.
