EDIT:
 
There is an option "Preserve Folder Structure" in the restore job options.
 
Refer to http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO23927
 
Quoted in above article:
 
Restores the data with its original directory structure. If you clear this option, all 
data (including the data in subdirectories) is restored to the path you specify.

Hi i found tis option, but that is wrong.

I have such structure on my tape stored:

share1-folder1-folder-2 and so on

i want restore

folder1-with all file and folderstructer and ntfs permission to a new fileserver.

I don't want to restore the higher folder called "share1"

 

and the optio you says restored all without high folder but als without tho folder i selected by retsore wizzard, Be just retsored all files without folder on the new fileserver
