Restore Console: restore systems and data fast

Restore systems and data with ease from a single, user-friendly console. Fast, effective restoration of files, folders, applications or entire servers.

Restore files, folders and applications from any server backed up with BackupAssist.
Restore Exchange databases from a VSS backup either individually or as a full information store.
Restore SQL Servers that were backed up by any VSS backup solution.
Restore Hyper-V hosts, data within hosts and full guests from a VSS backup.
Quickly locate backups and precisely identify the specific systems and data you wish to restore.

Powerful restore capabilities

Restore systems and data from backups created using imaging backups, file backups or archival backups. All backup types are VSS-aware and can be used to quickly and effectively restore applications such as Exchange, SQL and Hyper-V.

With just the base-license of BackupAssist, the Restore Console will:

  • Restore files and folders
  • Restore entire Exchange databases or servers
  • Restores entire SQL servers
  • Restore entire Hyper-V hosts and/or guests
  • Restore specific files from within a Hyper-V host

Customized restoration of systems and data

You can boost restore capabilities even further by using the restore features available in our BackupAssist Add-ons. Delve in deeper and restore even more of your mission-critical systems and data by:

  • Restoring individual Exchange items using the Exchange Granular Restore Add-on.  This allows the restoration of specific mail items (emails, contacts, calendar items, etc) from any Exchange database.
  • Restoring individual files from within a Hyper-V guest using the Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on.  This will allow you to restore individual files from within any Hyper-V guest from an image backup.
  • Cutting your SQL RPO down to 5 minutes using the SQL Protection Add-on.  This will allow you to choose how often your SQL databases are backed up and cut your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) down to just 5 minutes with our near-continuous technology.
  • Restoring from a tape device using the Tape Backup Add-on. This allows you to easily restore archival backups from tape.

Quickly locate your backups

Minimize the time it takes to restore systems and data by quickly and easily locating the backups you need.  The BackupAssist Restore Console offers a user-friendly interface that makes restoration simple.

If you know the backup you want to restore from, you can quickly load it into the Restore Console and browse the folders, files and applications to locate the required data.

Or, if you’re uncertain which specific backup contains the required data, you can easily find it with the intelligent search function.  Simply enter a search term and set your filters to quickly locate data that matches the criteria.

Plus, duplicate files and folders won’t be an issue.  The BackupAssist Restore Console makes it easy to find the exact version you need by allowing you to displaying only the files that have changed. 

For any file or folder with multiple versions, BackupAssist will display a icon and a number indicating how many versions were found.  Selecting will then display the different file versions and provide a date and time that each backup was made.

Configure setup options and view detailed reports on all restores

When initializing a restore job, you’ll be able to select from a range of settings to restore systems and data according to your needs.  The Restore Console allows configuration of: backup location, restore destination, overwrite settings and NTFS attributes.

Once your systems and data have been restored, you’ll be able to view detailed reports on the specifics of the process. This report provides confirmation of the restore and in-depth information about any errors that may have occurred, why they happened and how they can be resolved and avoided in future.

Here's what they have to say.

  • BackupAssist was, by far, the easiest and most reliable backup solution I have used in many years.I have been in the Information Technology field since 1987 and have seen many software vendors come and go. If BackupAssist keeps their products as good as this one then I suspect they will be in the market for the long haul. Thanks, BackupAssist!

    John Binford, Information Technology Director, Texas

  • After first several weeks of testing your software, I can say that being in this business since late 80's, I never run into backup tool giving so many options, way above average performance and at the same time staying wonderfully transparent and user friendly! It has been all pleasure working with BackupAssist.

    Stan, Government of Ontario, Canada

  • It's a simple, effective, up to date and powerful backup tool... its user friendly interface and ease of use are its greatest strengths... Great Backup-tool, excellent and quick response from your Company!

    Peter, Mapivalues NL, The Netherlands

  • Simple. Works. Easy to install and use. Thanks for making a product that makes my job EASIER!!!

    Cynthia Calvin, Benchmark Ventures, USA

  • All our clients want is a simple backup strategy that's secure, easy to follow and implement, and BackupAssist provides just that. It's an excellent product, and I do like the emailed logs as it allows me to remotely check progress.

    John Dance, Managing director, Rebooted Pty Ltd, Australia

  • The greatest strength is without doubt the easiness of implementing a working backup schedule. Combined with the email capability it provides everything I need for our business' backups at a very competitive price level!

    Johan Sandqvist, AB Gyllenhammar & Sahlin, Sweden

  • Have used [competitors' products] - too expensive, complicated architecture for majority of servers we use. Advantages of BackupAssist are simplicity. Cost. Ease of use. Easiest I have used so far - [competitors' products] etc. Complete novice could use this software. Full marks for ease of use / clear explanations.

    Kieran Murphy, Powerscreen International Ltd, N. Ireland

  • It's very easy to use. Other solutions were too expensive with almost same capabilities.

    Gerardo Arlotto, Jefe de Sistemas Compania Uruguaya de Cemento Portland, Uruguay

  • We needed a low-cost backup solution for one of our servers... BackupAssist has an advantage over expensive software solutions because it's simple, cost-effective and gets the job done without creating a complicated mess like some of the expensive packages do.

    Jim Ficarra, Cross Current Corporation, USA

  • BackupAssist's greatest strength is its automation. We needed a solution where the person at the remote site has NO admin rights, just needs to change the tape - nothing else!

    Aaron, Direct Wines, UK

  • Found it to be the most cost effective solution to backing up our two Windows servers.

    Bruce Segal, Decarie Motors, Canada

  • We tried lots of software. Among those evaluated were [major competitors' products]. All of the packages except yours operated inconsistently (or not at all), several would not read backup tapes it created an verified, some could not access hardware or access was inconsistent, some caused system lockups or blue screen crashes... all of the above packages ranged in price from $900 USD to > $3,000 USD.

    Mr. Charles D. Amata Jr., CPTechnologies Inc., USA

  • We needed to backup Exchange and SQL Server but didn't want to spend a fortune.

    Gary Baldwin, Davison C E High School, UK

  • I purchased BackupAssist because I was tired of pulling my hair out with [a competitor's] over priced and overly complex software. BackupAssist was the third or fourth demo I downloaded via Google. Ease of use. BackupAssist provided me with all the features I needed with a very easy to use setup/configuration interface. Good job with BackupAssist. Other backup software companies should take follow your lead.

    Jeff Lowe, Network Administrator, Indigenous Gaming Regulators Inc., Canada

  • Another Computer consultant evaluated, purchased and recommended this software. Since then, we are so impressed, that as far as I'm concerned any of our new servers will have a license of BackupAssist to make the media management simple.

    Scott Young, Network Integration Solutions Inc., Canada

  • Thank you for your product; I am very pleased with my decision to purchase this software. Coming from a non-profit background, it was very affordable compared to other products on the market.

    Tricia Sanchez, Westshore Dispute Resolution Center, USA

  • Really great performance. I highly recommend BackupAssist based on my experiences to date, and I know one consultant who has already purchased the software for a Windows server with a Synology DS1815+ NAS unit. I use one myself, with an iSCSI interface connection that makes a large NAS partition appear to be mounted as a local hard drive. BackupAssist finds it easy to locate and use. The price reduction compared to SAN storage is amazing.
