You can also search for restore reports from a specific period of date. For example, we have the From date which is, 01 Jan 2019 and the To date which is, 23 Jan 2019. Then click the Go button to generate the available reports.

If this is a valid range of dates then restore reports will be displayed unless there were no restoration running on the specified dates. A message of No records found will also be displayed.

10. The restored system image files are stored in the WindowsImageBackup folder in the restore location.

In addition to the system image files, the WindowsImageBackup folder includes catalog files that contain information about all backups in there up to the current backup, and MediaId, that contains the identifier for the backup storage location.

This information is required to perform a recovery. Do not alter the directory structure or delete any file / folder within the WindowsImageBackup folder.

11. Copy the WindowsImageBackup folder with its content to the server that you want to perform the restore for or copy the folder to a network drive that is accessible to the server that you want to perform the restore for.

WindowsImageBackup folder must be stored at the root level of a volume (e.g. top-most level), unless you are copying the folder to a network drive.
