RISK This mode selectively restores files to the disk. Files can be redirected to
new locations and using the MYID option can secure the new files as the userid

RISK This mode has no risk to the data on the tape or files on the system.
In Volume Mode, RESTORE re-creates an entire disk volume from a tape that was
created by a Volume Mode BACKUP. Only SUPER.SUPER can initiate a Volume
AP-RESTORE-POLICY-03 This mode is usually performed for disaster
recovery only. Only SUPER.SUPER can perform a volume mode restore.
How RESTORE Interacts With NonStop TMF Software
TMF has its own recovery mechanisms for audited files. However, BACKUP and
RESTORE might be used to:
Transport audited files to another system
Archive files and retrieve files that are used infrequently
Keep old versions of files
How RESTORE treats audited files depends on whether or not NonStop TMF
software was running when the BACKUP was made and when the RESTORE is per-
formed. It also depends on whether or not the file being restored was an audited file
and whether or not the file existed before the RESTORE.
