Size of restore

Created: 18 Jan 2013 | 1 comment

Does anyone know of a way that I can tell how much space I will need for a restore. I have a situation that I need to restore a folder from a backup to another server. However, the tech needs to create space for me to put it on the file server that has quotas established so, before I start a restore, I need to know if it would be too large to fit within the quota.
