How does restore work in restic


I am going through docs, etc but i am unable to find how does restic restore data ie by downloading only required data blocks of the snapshot selected to restore.

Comparison to how old incremental backup softwares work, data is restored incrementally.

Can someone please refer the link describing how restic restore works.

Thank you

Something like this Note that restore isn’t incremental, it restores all files in the snapshot.

I feel this should be added to the documentation :slight_smile:

@saviodsouza Can you elaborate? What needs to be added to the documentation, and where?

Sorry for the late reply

Both the site and the docs do not describe how restore works in Restic

I would suggest
this doc should be added atleast to the docs pages

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:
