This is a counterpart for granular recovery, allowing picking only some data from a dataset to save separately as backups. With advanced software like Handy Backup, you can even pick data twice, firstly on a backup stage, and then during creating a granular backup recovery task.
Most high-grade backup solutions have some functions for granular backup and recovery:
A Microsoft Sharepoint granular recovery technology completely realizes the functions of partial data restoration in both PowerShell and Central Administrator tools. You can provide a farm backup, partial data backup and object-related restoration of Sharepoint data when you need it, as with Handy Backup.
Microsoft Exchange also contains tools for partial restoration of its database. These tools, managed by Exchange server administrator, allow extracting some data from Exchange backups without a need for time-consuming and unsafe total Exchange restoration.
Symantec Backup Exec granular recovery technology (GRT) has a base in typical Backup Exec methods, which users can implement to pick backup data and then perform granular recovery. However, this technology is somewhat linked to tape backup, which is now redundant or obsolete for most tasks.

This simple instruction assumes that you are creating a backup task in Handy Backup. It works with most plug-ins, including Computer, Network, User Folders, FTP/SFTP/FTPS, Registry, almost all database plug-ins (excluding Lotus Notes), allowing VMware granular backup and recovery, works with all clouds etc.
Due to protective measures by Microsoft, updates and patches can limit the possibilities of granular recovery for Exchange. After some updates of Exchange Server, you can restore only an entire dataset with Handy Backup. This is a problem of compatibility, which the Handy Backup Support team solves.
The main advantages of granular recovery are the economy of time to restore only the objects needed, and a greater protection from mishaps and undesired data changes that can occur with a full restoration. Therefore, a good granular restore software saves your efforts and your data!
