Are you attempting to restore from a snapshot? (wait, i can see that you are)

What are the parameters of the backup policy? Can you post that here?

Hi Tim,

I dont think we are performing any kind of snapshot things because in the policy attributes. Snapshot options are checked out. I have posted my policy prop in the attachments below. Thanks in advance :)

What are you restoring to?

- If it's to a '.snapshot' then it won't work as that's read-only

- If to a different filer is it the same make/OS?

As far as the 'greyed out portion' that you were querying in the OP - this signifies something that cannot be restored, but may contain something that can:

Hi Andy,

Restore is to the same filer.when im trying to create a new folder through restoring the data . Restore fails with 5.

Sounds like you need to create the 'Restore' folder manually before actually trying to restore to it.
