A current version of SecuriSync supports the Restore functionality for both live and deleted folders.

Restore option is available for:

  • Admins
  • end-users with Owner/Co-Owner and Modify permissions

for all 3 top-level folders (My SecuriSync, Desktop, Documents) and their subfolders. Several files / folders can be restored at the same time.

Deleted folders

To restore a deleted folder and its content:

  1. Click Deleted Items under Filters
  2. Click Restore next to the name of the folder / file you want to restore:
    Restore deleted items

Live folders

There are 3 scenarios for content restore in the live folders:

  • Restore content which was deleted after selected restore date and time
    Example: file A was deleted on 1/2/2016. 1/1/2016 was selected as the restore date. File A will be restored.
  • Restore the latest version of the file that was saved before the selected restore date and time
    Example: file A was created on 1/1/2016 (Version 1 of the file). It was modified on 1/3/2016 (Version 2 of the file). 1/2/2016 was selected as the restore date. Version 1 will be restored, and all 3 versions of the file will be available under Versions.
  • Delete files / folders created after the selected restore date and time. They can be restored from the Recycle Bin at any time by SecuriSync Admin.
    Example: file A was created 1/2/2016. 1/1/2016 was selected as the restore date. File A will be deleted

To restore content in the live folder:

  1. Select the file / folder to restore
  2. Click Actions > Restore
  3. Select the date and time of the restore and click Restore:
    Restore live content

Moved folders

There are several scenarios for content restore after moving folders:

  • If a content of subfolder has been moved to a different subfolder and then the restore of the content has been initiated, the content will stay in a different subfolder but will be restored to the version of the first subfolder. 
    Example: file version 1.1 of subfolder A has been moved to subfolder B and become file 1.2, then the restore of file 1.2 has been initiated which results of file 1.2 to be restored to 1.1 in the subfolder B
  • If a content of subfolder has been moved to a different subfolder and the restore of a different subfolder has been requested, the content will be removed and stay in the Deleted Items folder. Example: file version 1.1 of subfolder A has been moved to subfolder B and become file 1.2, then restore of subfolder B has been requested which results of file 1.2 being deleted and located in Deleted Items folder.
  • If a content of subfolder has been moved to a different subfolder and then the restore of a top-level folder has been requested, the content will be removed from a different sub-folder to the Deleted Items folder and restored in the initial subfolder. 
    Example: file version 1.1 of subfolder A has been moved to subfolder B and become file 1.2, then restore of the public folder has been initiated which results in the content of subfolder B moved to Deleted Items folder and file version 1.1 restored in subfolder A
  • If a content of subfolder has been moved to a different subfolder and then the restore of an initial subfolder has been initiated, the content will stay in different subfolder and will be restored in initial subfolder. 
    Example: file version 1.1 of subfolder A has been moved to subfolder B and become file 1.2, then restore of subfolder A has been initiated which results of file 1.2. staying in sub-folder B and file 1.1 restored in the subfolder 

Important:

  • live shares created before or after the restore won't be affected. 
  • renamed folders will have the names reverted back if you perform Restore.
  • restore doesn't affect permissions.
