Another new feature when restoring (Windows) files is the possibility to restore only the permissions. This can be helpful if you accidentally activate inheritance for a directory.

You can select single files or a directory. As usual, a summary is displayed when the job is completed. The error shown in the screenshot is due to a file that has already been deleted and for which the permissions cannot be restored.

For this to work, network connection must be established. VIX does not work here.

It is funny you posted this as I just wrote about it in one of my chapters recently.  😂

Great feature for sure for those “oops” moments.  😋

I’ve had a couple times it would have been handy to use this, but I forget it exists.  Thanks for the reminder!
