Unable to select restore down to file level

NethServer release 7.6.1810 (final)
Kernel release 3.10.0-957.10.1.el7.x86_64
Module: Restore

Hello,
Thanks to previous tips, I’ve managed to get the backup module running. I have then tried to restore some files but when selecting the files to restore, the interface doesnt allow me to go to the file level, ie I can only restore parent folder for any files.
Is it a known limitation or simply a misunderstanding on my part ?
For clarification, I have read the wiki and found the restore-file -b name -t 15D /tmp “/var/lib/nethserver/ibay/test/myfile” exemple.
I would like to know if the CLI is the only way to restore specific files or if the graphical interface allows that somehow ?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sol

You can’t restore a file from interface but only a folder. It’s the correct behaviour of interface. You can restore files only from CLI https://nethserver.docs.nethesis.it/it/v7/backup.html#command-line-procedure

Probably it will be implemented in the new interface Cockpit.

Regards.
