The Synthetic Catalog View is the bane of the typical incremental restore (TECH195950).  Like many companies we do full backups on weekends and incremental backups on weekdays.  Our full backup tapes are shipped offsite for storage.  If I want to restore Tuesday's changed files on Wednesday I have to manually go through the selection list to pick the files that are actually on the tape otherwise the full backup media is required.  With nested directories and such this can be dozens of clicks.  An option to turn off the synthetic catalog view and only restore from the selected media is definitely a necessity.
