When an end user has located a file to retrieve, simply clicking the name of the file opens the most recent backup. To view previous revisions of the file, the end user can click the View all versions link, and then open the desired version by clicking on it.
The process of retrieving directories or multiple files functions like a shopping cart. An end user can select the needed files from the relevant directories, and then use the interface to add those files to a list of items for retrieval. When all of the needed files have been selected, the end user simply "checks out" by clicking a button to retrieve the items. To accomplish the retrieval, a download manager program is downloaded to the end user's computer, which then retrieves each file.
There are two versions of the download manager program that are used to retrieve files. One requires the Microsoft .NET 2.0 framework, while the other one does not. The .NET 2.0 version provides a more seamless retrieve experience, and will be used when it is available on the end user's computer, but the system will use the non-.NET version when necessary.

If necessary, add more files to the retrieve list by using the Browse tab and then locating the files. To add the files to the retrieve list, select the desired files, and then click Add to Retrieve List.
