Restore from different directories

Post by poet-man »

Sometimes I need to restore backup files from different directories (say "private" and "business").

Restore dialog tells me, what were the latest backup files that were created. But it doesnot tell me, in which directory the file is situated. This would be an additional information to make sure to restore the correct file.

So would it be possible to show directories as well?

Thanks

The listed backup files are in the default folder, which you could see by clicking on the Search button.

I am not quite sure, we are talking of the same things ... so situation on my side is like THIS (see screenshot):

Under "Backup Ordner" I can see which is the folder AEPIM will use for backup (is this what you mean by "default folder"?).
Under "Rücksichern" it always shows the same list of backup files, no matter which folder is set under "backup Ordner".
If I switch to another folder, it still shows the same list, whereas the search button you mention shows completely different files (content of the set folder).
If I remember correct, setting a different folder and doing a backup, list will show a combination of backups from both folders.

EPIM always looks up for local backup files from the default folder first, which is /storage/emulated/0/Download/EPIMBackup.
