"Show Folder" missing from "Restore" file selection dialog?

Post by JeffBuckles » Wed Aug 19, 2020 1:40 am

Hi, Barry,
Hope you are doing well.

I have occasion to restore some files from a back up (old computer has returned to dust) and I have limited temoporary space in which to restore them. So I need to be selective about how much I try to restore at once.

Under "Manage Backup" I can enable "Show Folder" to see the cumulative size of each folder's contents. The folder sizes appear immediately, so I suspect they are already recorded in the database. However, when I begin to select files to restore then "Show Folder" does not appear to be an option.

Have I overlooked something? Or if not, would it be possible to add this option to the restore dialog?

Thanks and Best Regards,
--

Hi Jeff

This was never implemented on the file restore option, only on the 'Backup Maintenance' option. I will look at providing this option.

Hi Jeff

The folder size option on the restore form will be in the next release of AISBackup.
