How do I restore files from my rsync backup on Linux?

Log in as root to your server

To restore a single file (LEDGER) to a temporary directory (/esupport/restore):

mkdir -p /esupport/restore
rsync -av --progress --inplace --stats /mnt/nas/rsync/u2/backup-20170118.2200/eclipse/LEDGER /esupport/restore/

To restore an entire directory (/u2/eclipse) to it’s original location (/u2/eclipse) for a full system recovery:

Warning: As always, please exercise caution when performing system maintenance, especially when initiating processes that can potentially overwrite data.
rsync -av --progress --inplace --stats /mnt/nas/rsync/backup-20170118.2200/u2/eclipse/ /u2/eclipse/
