Easier manual backup recovery process!
The current method in which backups are managed is neat but extremely difficult to deal with. Even the documentation is a bit lousy. It would be great if there was a single, easy tool to extract a portion of a backup. This would make managing LARGE site backups much easier. I just went through pain when extracting files from the backup.
You can probably preview our better recovery process in upcoming Plesk 12.0 version. It allows choosing selected parts of backup to recover (up to individual file).
If you already tried Plesk 12.0, please tell us your opinion in https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10kOuXE5uFDtMf3SfqneS_CwlAxTHYl2eSFwJ-yNLAMg/edit
If you didn’t try Plesk 12.0 yet, you can get it at http://sp.parallelsnetwork.com/plesk-12-preview/
