Using Restore List

If you want to select items located in different folders in the hierarchy of folders with backed-up data displayed in the navigation pane, you can add them to the restore list. For example, you can add to the restore list one by one items of different types: mailbox items, OneDrive and SharePoint files, and proceed to their restore.

To add items to the restore list, do the following:

  1. Open the Explore tab.
  2. In the navigation pane, browse through the hierarchy of folders with backed-up data.
  3. Select a folder that contains data you want to restore.
  4. In the preview pane, select check boxes next to the necessary items.

For documents and files, you can select which version of an item you want to restore. To do this, in the Version column, click the most recent version number, and in the displayed window, select the earlier version to restore.


Consider the following:

  • Restore Portal displays up to 2000 items, so search for specific items.
  • You can narrow your search results by specifying various search criteria using the criteria:value format. For more information about search parameters, see this section of REST API Reference.
  • You can also use logical upper-cased operators such as AND, OR and NOT along with wildcard characters such as * and ?.
  • To search items by a specific date/time, specify the time in the UTC format. You can hover over the date in the Received column to view the UTC value.
  1. Click Add to Restore List.
  2. Repeat steps 2–5 to add more items to the restore list.

To remove items from the restore list, select check boxes next to the necessary items and click Remove from Restore List.
