Restoring photos from an archive
When you back up your archive to backup disks, you might remove the photos from your hard drive. In these cases, you can restore the photos to your computer. When you open an archive in Photo Backup, the photos that need restoring appear in the main window with a blue label. The photos also display a tooltip with the words Not on hard drive.
After you select a command to restore photos, Photo Backup automatically checks to see if any photos in the current view need restoring. If you want to restore the photos, you select options to copy the photos to the original location or a different one. The photos, along with their file attributes and dates, are placed on your hard drive.
After you restore your photos, the photo displays a white label in the main window.
