Works with Your Backup Tool

Selective Restore Manager can restore SharePoint items from native, free backups created by SQL Server, STSADM Castatrophic Backup, or SharePoint Central Administration Farm Backup, as well as standalone backup and restore solutions such as Microsoft's Data Protection Manager— or even third-party backup platforms.

Flexible SharePoint Restore

Recover Lost Content Quickly

You backup SharePoint in case hardware fails, software crashes, or users accidentally delete important work. But recovering items from a backup is a painful, time consuming and expensive process. With Selective Restore Manager, you can avoid duplicating your entire SharePoint environment. Simply point Selective Restore Manager to a backup file and restore just the items you need.

SharePoint Restore with High-fidelity

When Selective Restore Manager restores content and site structures, it also restores critical metadata. That means views, version chains, workflows, permissions and authorship are restored and associated with the content. Restore SharePoint with confidence that your users will find themselves right back where they started.


Browse and preview items before you restore

Browse restored SQL Server backups as if they were live SharePoint sites. You can even preview documents before restoring to confirm that you've found what you're looking for. It's as easy as navigating file folders in Windows Explorer. No special tools are required and no catalogs need to be generated. Watch a Selective Restore Manager demo >
