Restore over existing files

Overwrite the file on disk only if it is older

Prevents Backup Exec from overwriting the files that are on the destination drive if they are more recent than the files from the archives.

This option is enabled by default.

Preserve tree

Restores the files from the archives with their original directory structure intact.

This option is enabled by default.

If you clear this option, all data including subdirectories is restored from the archives to the path that you specify in the Redirection dialog box.

You may want to clear this option when you restore several subdirectories or individual files from the archives. You should not clear this option if you restore an entire share from the archives.
