Livedrive Restore – restoring files from Livedrive Backup just got easier!

Livedrive Backup is a great way to protect your files – you can just install it and forget about it, and it quietly works in the background to protect your files as you use your computer. If you need to get your files back, or if you want to see them from anywhere in the world, you can just log into your web portal and view them online or download them.

This works great for smaller files and folders, but downloading large numbers of files from the web can sometimes be cumbersome. That’s why we’re delighted to introduce Livedrive Restore – a Windows application that makes restoring your files as easy as it was to back them up in the first place.

Livedrive Restore

Livedrive Restore lets you browse your Livedrive Backup account, select any file or folder, and then restore it straight to your PC at any location you choose. It uses Livedrive’s advanced Backup technology to download your files, meaning the downloads are super-quick and extremely reliable:

Livedrive Restore has been launched as a beta release, which means that this is a preview, may not be perfect yet and is not supported by our tech support team – we recommend that for important or critical files you restore from your web portal as normal. In the meantime, we’d love your feedback and suggestions to help us improve it – please leave your feedback in the Livedrive forum, or e-mail our support team at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
