View your backed-up files

Overview

After you've started backing up your files with the Code42 app, you may want to see which files have been backed up. To view your backed-up files, follow the steps below.

Steps

As soon as a file is backed up, it's ready to be downloaded. To view your backed-up files:

  1. Open and sign in to the Code42 app.
  2. See a list of backed-up files:
  • Code42 app version 6.8.3 and later:
    1. Click Restore Files.
    2. (Applies only if you have multiple devices) From the menu, select the device that originally backed up the files you want to restore.
  • Code42 app version 6.8.2 and earlier:
    1. Click Get Files.
  1. Review the list of backed-up files. Click the folder name to see its contents.
When was this file or folder last backed up?
To see when a file or folder was last backed up, view its history, not its Date Modified timestamp. From Home or Details, click Restore Files or Get Files. Then, mouse over a file and click the versions icon (Versions icon) to see all versions backed up for that file.
Folder versus file changes
Because folders typically do not change as often as files do, the Date Modified column of a folder tends to stay the same. A folder's Date Modified does not show changes to the individual files within it. To see the last time a file was changed, click the folder to see the Date Modified column for the files within that folder.

Download files

Checking to make sure you've included all of your important files in your backup selection is a great idea. It's also the perfect time to test downloading a few files just to be sure you'll know how to retrieve your files when you really need them.
