7. Click Start Restore to restore the selected files and folders. If there is already a
file or folder with the same name in the location you’ve selected, you can:
Overwrite the current version with the restored version by clicking Copy
and Replace.
Keep the current version and discard the restored version by clicking “Don’t
copy.”
Keep both versions by clicking the “Copy, but keep” option. The new file-
name will be the same as the old filename, but with a numeric suffix, indi-
cating the version increment.

this for all conflicts” checkbox before you click an option.
