- Select Next.
The Options window opens.
- Update the restore options to specify the restore location, naming convention, and permissions for your restored files. When in doubt, restore using current permissions.
- Click Restore.
Your download begins immediately. The Restore Status displays the status of your restored files.
- It is safe to close the CrashPlan app while the files restore in the background.
- If you are restoring a large amount of data, consider optimizing your computer settings to prevent disruptions.
- Alternatively, if you don't want to restore all of the files at once, you can shut down or put your computer to sleep, and the restore will resume where it left off when it is powered on again.
