Users can restore a previous version of an existing file or a deleted file from snapshots stored on the Mirage server.

The restore is based on files and directories included in CVD snapshots, in accordance with the upload policies currently in effect. See Working with Upload Policies.

When the CVD contains Encrypted File System (EFS) files, the files are recovered in their original encrypted form. Only EFS files that the recovering user encrypted are restored from the CVD. Unauthorized files are filtered from the restore.

The file restore operation generates an audit event on the Mirage server for management and support purposes.

Files are restored with their original Access Control Lists (ACLs).
