Disks and partitions tab

The Disks and partitions tab shows the backed up disks and partitions that the selected backup version contains.

The tab shows the disks and partitions state of when the current backup version was created.

You can switch between the backup versions by using the time line at the bottom of the screen. For more information see Time line.

  2. Select the corresponding check boxes of the disks or partitions you want to recover.
  3. Click the Recover button.

To recover specific files and folders from the disk/partition backups:

  1. Click the Files and folders tab.
