When you restore archived documents, DT FileCabinet does not delete the volume or the archive information. For information on deleting the volume icons and history for an archive, see Deleting archive information.

  1. Choose File > Archive.
  2. Click the Restore archive option and then click the Continue button. DT FileCabinet gathers the archive information for all drawers.

    Note: This process could take several minutes.

  3. Highlight the archive you want to restore in the left pane and then click the Select button.

    Note: Documents that were not archived are not affected when you restore an archive.

  4. Mark the Automatically create folders checkbox if you want DT FileCabinet to create folders for the documents you are restoring.
  5. Click the Restore button.
  6. Click the Yes button to continue restoring the archives.
  7. If DT FileCabinet finds a duplicate item in the restore location, choose the appropriate option.
  8. Click OK.

Note: When restoring drawers that are password protected, you will be prompted to enter the password if it has changed or has been removed since the drawer was archived.
