In the Storage column you can view cloud storages where the backup has been uploaded. If it is not found locally you will be able to search for it in the cloud storage and then download it.


When restoring on the chosen date using the history the search of the needed for restoring full and differential backups is performed. For example, if you are restoring a transaction log then all backups will be found: starting from the full to all transaction log backups. All detected backups will be restored sequentially by LSN log numbers to ensure a full restoring.


Note: If the file hasn't been uploaded to the cloud and it's not found locally, the corresponding history point will not be displayed. You can select the required file manually.


You can add backup files manually from the local or network folder or cloud by choosing the Select files option.


Note: If you have selected the backup that is not found on the local drive it will be searched in the cloud automatically on proceeding to the next step. The search is performed in the clouds that were specified during the backup and in the similar cloud storages from the Cloud Connections list.
