Restoring Salesforce Data to a File System

You can restore the Salesforce data to a folder that resides on one of your Commvault clients.

Before You Begin


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > Cloud Apps > instance.
  2. Right-click the subclient, and then click Browse and Restore.
  3. On the Browse and Restore Options dialog box, select Latest Backup, and then click View Content.
  4. Select the data that you want to restore, and then click Recover All Selected.

    The Restore Options dialog box appears.

  5. On the General tab, provide the destination information:
    1. Select the File System check box.
    2. In the Destination Client list, select a Linux proxy server that has the Cloud Apps package installed.
    3. In the Number of Streams box, type the number of streams that the software uses for the restore operation.
    4. In the Destination Path box, type the full path to the restore location.
    5. Under Salesforce Options, set the restore options:
      • To include parent objects in the restore, from the Parent objects to restore list, select All parents.

        Important: Including parent objects has the following effects: Data integrity is maintained. If parent objects are included and some parents do not exist or some parents have incorrect values, restore operations will complete. However, when objects such as User objects are updated, end users will receive notifications, which may not be desirable.

      • To include child objects in the restore, from the Child objects to restore list, select the child objects.
  6. On the Job Initiation tab, specify whether to run the restore now or if it will be scheduled.

    If you selected Schedule, set up the schedule. For information on configuring a restore schedule, see Schedule Restore.

  7. Click OK.
