Barracuda Backup

Restore Data via Download

  • Last updated on

As an alternative to restoring data to a restore target, Barracuda provides the ability to download data directly to your workstation. In the Restore Browser, the Download hyperlink displays next to the Restore option, as shown in the image below. There are two ways to initiate a download – from the web user interface and from the local user interface. Downloads initiated within the local user interface usually perform better and download faster, as described here:

  • Downloads initiated in the web user interface – Data is pulled directly from the cloud storage target (if replicated offsite to the Barracuda Cloud or AWS) or from the local Barracuda Backup device.
  • Downloads initiated in the local user interface – Data is pulled from the local Barracuda Backup device, as opposed to cloud storage (if replicated offsite), so they generally perform better and download faster.

In Barracuda Backup 6.5, Barracuda implemented download restart/resume capability from the web browser. Currently, only Firefox provides the ability to restart/resume downloads. Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome do not provide restart/resume capability. For this reason, Barracuda recommends Firefox when downloading files, especially large files where the chances of a network disruption may occur.
