Restoring backed up information
The Restore feature allows you to retrieve the information you have backed up and copy it to its original location or to any other place on your computer.
To restore the information, you will need to go through a Restore Guide that allows you to choose the information type, the location and the place where you want the files or e-mails restored to. The guide is easily started by clicking on the Restore your data button from the Backup’s drop down menu in the main BullGuard window.

Click Next to proceed.
In the next window, you will need to select the files and folders that you want to restore. Click Next if you have finished choosing the data to restore.
In the next screen, you will need to select a location where to place the retrieved files. For retrieving e-mails, you will need to select the e-mail client and Identity you want the e-mails retrieved to. Click on the Start button to have BullGuard retrieve your files.
Please do not interrupt the retrieval process until it completes successfully. When the Restoring is complete, you will be notified in the Messaging Centre > Backup > Activity section.
