Allows you to restore corrupt files. Select this option only if you do not want to have Backup Exec automatically exclude corrupt files from the restore process.
This option is only recommended if a job has failed because a catalog query could not determine the corrupt files on the tape. Normally, when a restore job is run, Backup Exec queries the catalog to determine if any corrupt files are on the tape and excludes them from the restore job. If, during the query process, Backup Exec cannot determine if a file is corrupt, the Restore job will not continue and will be marked as Failed. If a corrupt file cannot be excluded automatically, you can manually exclude corrupt files in the Restore selections window and run the job with theoption enabled.
Restores the data with its original directory structure intact. This option is enabled by default. If you clear this option, all data (including the data in subdirectories) is restored to the path you specify in the Redirection dialog box.
