Description

Redirecting the restore of individual SharePoint 2007 objects to a file path

You can redirect the restore of SharePoint file-based data such as documents and images that have been uploaded to a document library or are attached to list items. Individual items and their versions can only be redirected to a file location, not another content database. Use the following steps to restore individual objects to a file path.

Note:

You cannot restore SharePoint security information when you restore an item to a file path.
