Select the “Snapshots” link from the bottom left of the screen.

Choose the date range of the snapshots you would like to target.

In the left hand panel click the checkbox next to the snapshot containing the files you wish to restore as well as the “Files” check box to list contents.



Click the triangle next to the file you wish to restore to expand the view and click on the “Restore” button.

Next browse to the share from your desktop and you’ll see the restored file
