FSAUtility restore all archived files into differrent location

EV 10.0.1 - we would like to use FSAUtility to restore all archived files into differrent location

However we have a small issue, where we have two archives for same target location, maybe what happened is there was a issue with the archive point and then a new archive point has been created and ended up with two archives for same target location.

Now if we use FSAUtility to restore all archived files will it restore from both archives or just the current archive?

Many Thanks

  • you don't have to worry about the Archive Point.. You can restore all items to a different location..

    Syntax : FSAUtility -t -s UNC_path [-D mm-dd-yyyy] -d UNC_path 

    Note: it will also restore the items for which the placeholders have been deleted as it look into the database in the archive and restore eerything inthe archive...

    You can also run the FSA Utility in report mode to first verify the results..

    Check the following article which will help you about restoring items through FSAUtility...
