FEATURE REQUEST: Selective restore of only files that have changed

There should be a way to restore only files that do not exist or files that are newer than what is on the existing disk.  At this time you can only restore all files with an overwrite or only files that do not exist by not using the overwrite command.

 

But if you have a disk from several days ago ad want to restore all changed files, you need also to be able to restore any file that has changed and that is newer on the backup than on the hard drive.

 

I have been using Mozy for many years and have many clients using it and have never realized the absence of this ability.

 

I feel this is a critical ability that can be a requirement in many situations.  It will allow for a much shorter restore and get the clients back to full functionality much sooner than having to restore an entire backup.

 

Thanks,

Brad Miller
