Restoring archived files
You can use FSAUtility with the -t parameter to restore some or all of the archived files to their original location or a new location.
To make sure that any file recalls do not exceed the recall limits, create an Enterprise Vault Backup Operators group in Active Directory, and include in that group the account that is to perform the restore.
By default, FSAUtility restores the files in asynchronous mode. You can choose instead to restore files synchronously if you want. With a synchronous restore you can set a timeout for file restores, and see the progress of each file restore operation. To restore files synchronously and to set a timeout for file restores, create a DWORD entry called FileDownloadTimeOut under the following registry key on the Enterprise Vault server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Wow6432Node \KVS \Enterprise Vault \FSARestore
If FileDownloadTimeOut is set to 0, FSAUtility restores files asynchronously. Any value greater than 0 denotes the timeout, in seconds, for each file recall.
FSAUtility -t -s UNC_path [-D mm-dd-yyyy] -d UNC_path [-e ext_list] [-f] [-l log_level] [-r]
-s UNC_path specifies the path to the required folder, volume, or file server.
-D mm-dd-yyyy specifies an archive date. FSAUtility restores files archived after the specified date.
-d UNC_path specifies the path to the destination folder.
[-e ext_list] specifies the file types to restore as a comma-separated list of file name extensions. For example:
By default, the utility restores all file types.
-f forces FSAUtility to restore the files when placeholders or files of the same name already exist. The utility first deletes the existing placeholders or files and then restores the files.
-l log_level specifies whether to log both successful operations and failed operations (0) or failed operations only (1). By default, FSAUtility logs failed operations only.
-r specifies report mode. FSAUtility generates a report that outlines the activities that it would perform if you were to run it in normal mode, but without performing those activities.
FSAUtility generates a report named
EV_FILESYSTEM_UTILITY_REPORT_DateTime.txt, in the folder
If you run -t in normal mode, FSAUtility generates a report named
The following command restores the Word and Excel files in the folder
\\myserver\users. It also generates a log file that lists both successful operations and failed operations.
FSAUtility -t -s \\myserver\users -e *.doc,*.xls -l 0
The following command restores the Word and Excel files for an entire file server.
FSAUtility -t -s \\myserver -e *.doc,*.xls -l 0
The following command restores all the files that were archived after September 26 2006 on the entire file server.
FSAUtility -t -s \\myserver -D 09-26-2006
The following command restores the files that were archived after January 2 2002 from
FSAUtility -t -s \\myserver\users -d \\newserver\users -D 01-02-2002 -l 0
FSAUtility does not support "hard link" files (directory references to files). You cannot restore an archived file if that file has the same name as a hard link file in the destination folder. When you perform a restore operation, FSAUtility recalls any placeholders that are hard link files.
When you recall files to a Dell EMC Celerra/VNX device, FSAUtility applies only the folder permissions to the files. If there are placeholders with file-specific permissions, the file permissions are lost and you must reapply them manually.
Due to a NetApp restriction, FSAUtility does not restore archived files if the path to the folder exceeds 512 characters.
