You can restore any single volume that was backed up. When you restore a volume, the existing volume is overwritten by default.


Ensure that the volume you want to restore is detached.


  1. From the App Volumes Manager, go to VOLUMES (2.X) > Writables.
    A list of users is displayed.
  2. Select the user for whom you want to restore the volume.
    A list of actions that can be performed for the selected user is displayed on the right.
  3. On the Restore Writable page, provide the following information:
    Option Description
    Source Storage Select a source storage from the drop-down menu.
    Source Path Enter the path from the volume is to be restored. The default path is /cloudvolumes/writable.
  4. Click Restore.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Writable Volumes window, select when you want to restore the selected volume:
    • Restore volume in the background - App Volumes Manager dispatches a background job to restore the volume and the display goes back to the manager console immediately.
    • Restore volume immediately - App Volumes Manager waits for the restore to be completed and the console is not responsive until either the process is complete or 10 minutes have elapsed.


Go to ACTIVITY > Activity Log to see detailed information about the operation. Go to ACTIVITY > System Messages to see any warnings or error messages.
Note: After a volume is restored, the volume ID of the restored volume is different since the original volume is either deleted or replaced. The activity logs do not display the new ID and the entity and target columns are shown as empty.
