With 4D v11 SQL it is now possible to perform a partial restore using the MSC.

From the Restore tab in the MSC, there is a Content section that displays the individual files that are in the backup, as shown here:



Each item in the list contains a checkbox denoting whether the file should be included in the Restore. If a file is not needed in the Restore, simply uncheck the boxes for those files.

This can be very useful if you regulary backup large amounts of data and many files, but only need a small portion of the backup, maybe even just 1 file.
