How can I create a smaller restore or pick and choose what's in my restore?

For various reasons, you may want to create a smaller restore than all your backed up data.

• To only download certain files or prioritize important files first

• To download faster or improve reliability with spotty internet connections

• In case of a computer not having enough space to hold the entire restore

• If you want to restore a single file


To create a smaller restore, log in to your Backblaze account, click on View/Restore Files.


In the File Browser, use the disclosure triangles to display subfolders of your backed up drives. Navigate to the location of the files you desire, and click the checkbox next to the folder or files you wish to restore. Click "Continue with Restore" to prepare this subset of your data for restore.
