Having selected the necessary data, press
File Recovery window select whether you want to recover the selected data to the original location or to the new location:
(!) If you select New location, it is recommended to leave Recover absolute path option disabled. If you enable it, there will be the entire folder tree hierarchy recreated upon the recovery. E.g. if there is a file C:\Images\Picture.jpg present in the backup, and you select to restore it to new location, to D:\ in particular and enable Recover absolute path option, as a result you will get: D:\Drive(C)\Images\Picture.jpg. If the option is left disabled, there will be simply D:\Picture.jpg.
