S3 restores

Objects in a protection group can be restored using either Global Search or using a specific point-in-time from the calendar view. You can restore all the S3 assets from a protection group or you can select specific objects to restore. You can also choose the account or region, the bucket, and the storage class to restore the objects.

You can also directly access access point-in-time backup data for purposes of backup validation, granular restore at scale, DR testing and copy data management with Clumio's S3 Instant Access feature. See S3 instant access for details.
