Restoring Files via “Zoolz Restore” Desktop Application

Before starting the restoration process with the Zoolz Restore desktop application, make sure your computer’s power settings are correctly configured to avoid any interruptions. Refrain from logging out of your user profile, restarting, or shutting down your device throughout the entire restoration duration.
Restoration from Cold Storage requires 3-12 hours to commence.
  1. Open your Zoolz desktop software and click on the Restore option. This will launch the Zoolz Restore application.
    If the Zoolz desktop application is not installed on your machine, please refer to this article and follow the steps provided.
  2. From the window, select the name of the computer that you want to restore from.
  3. Select the data that you want to restore from the left-side panel and add it to the right-side one using the Add icon. Once done, click the Next button.
  4. Select the restore location and the time frame that you want to restore from. Then click on the Next button.

Zoolz will start calculating the files that will be restored, and you will notice that a red cloud icon appears in the system tray.

Throughout this entire restoration process, it is important that you keep your machine running without turning it off, logging out of your user profile, or putting it to sleep. The downloading of files will commence once they are ready and accessible. You may minimize or close the Zoolz Restore window as it will not impede the restoration process.
