Better Restoration and Reporting Tools

Better Restoration and Reporting Tools

So we wanted to delete a large number of picture files and folders (too large to go in the trash bin) and we ended up deleting everything in these folders, not just the pictures.  This was thousands of files.  We saw in the activity logo the event and you could click on the event, but you could not restore the event.  I then thought that we could export the event list and sort by file type and just restore the critical files, but this report has almost no usable information.  It does not even include the file name or format.   So I was forced to do a rewind, losing 48 hours of work.  I think a few small fixes could massive improve this functionality.  Here they are:

 

1. You should be able to restore from the activity tab, that way you could choose the event you want to restore and this would be much better then rewind as this is a targeted event.

2. The reporting to CSV. is great, but it needs good information including Filename, file date, file time and file format (i.e. jpg, docx, etc.)
