Restoring your files with Avandrive desktop

Avandrive Backup automatically keeps copies of your files safe in the cloud. If you accidentally delete a file from your computer or you lose your computer and want to transfer all of your files to a new device we have created a program called Avandrive Restore.


Avandrive Restore is built into the Avandrive desktop software for Windows and Mac OS X. It will help you easily transfer multiple files from Avandrive to your computer. To open the program simply click on the Avandrive icon on your task bar. This can be found at the bottom right of your screen on a Windows computer or the top of a Mac OS X screen. Select “Restore Backups” from the menu and Avandrive Restore will open in a separate window.




A list of backed up computers will be displayed on the left hand menu. Simply select the computer containing the folder you want to restore and then click on the folder you want to download to your computer.

Please note: You cannot restore all backed up folders at the same time.




If you have deleted the file it will no longer appear on this list. Instead click on the folder and then select the menu option “Default view” next select the option “show deleted files”. Any files which have been deleted within the last 30 days will now be displayed in the list.




To restore a folder simply right click on the folder on a Windows computer. If you are using a Mac OS X device simply click on the folder name. Next select the “Restore” option from the menu.




A pop up will appear asking you if you would like to restore the folder to its original location or to a different location. If you are restoring files which were stored on the computer you are using we would suggest using “Restore to original location”. If you are restoring files which were backed up from another computer we would suggest that you use the “choose destination folder” option. When choosing a destination we suggest that you restore the files directly to the C drive on your computer instead of a folder within a folder.




Once youhave selected the restore location and are happy with the settings simply click the “Restore” button at the bottom of the window. Your files will now begin to download back to your computer.
