About restoring from raw partition backups

A raw partition backup is a server-directed, full backup of a UNIX partition. The backup is done on a bit-by-bit basis instead of a file and a folder basis.

When you restore from a raw partition backup, the entire partition is restored. As a result, all previous data on the destination drive is overwritten.

You can restore a raw partition backup to its original drive or to a different drive.

To restore individual files or directories, first redirect the restore to a different raw partition of the same size. Then copy individual items to the original partition.
