Dear all
Hi

can you explain what is difference when select enable guest file system indexing and when we don't select that during create job?

because i read in document that said : If indexing is disabled, you will be able to use only quick search within selected restore point.

ok but we can just search file in restore points (backups) when want restore a file nw could not understand that means ?

Without indexing, you can do file level recovery but you need to know the exact path of the file

With indexing, you can go the enterprise manager and use the search functionality

For example, somebody says, I need the file accounting.xlsx but I don't know where it was stored, in this case you can use the indexing
