How Do I Restore a Datto Drive Subdomain to a Previous Point in Time?



How do I restore a Datto Drive subdomain to a previous point in time?


  • Datto Drive


This article provides the steps to run a restore to a previous point in time (PiT) on a Datto Drive Subdomain. This article will also go over the limitations and precautions.

Stop! (Read this first)

  • Only Partners managing Datto Drive subdomains are able to start restores, this is done on This webpage requires technician-level access from the Datto Partner Portal .
  • PiT Restores will revert the entire subdomain to a previous point in time, you cannot pick and choose what user(s), folder(s) or file(s) you would like to only be restored.
This will remove all restore points between the most current date and the rollback point.
  • The files you may need to restore are likely available on your subdomain as previous versions (if the files have changed). If you only need to restore a handful of files it will likely be faster to restore the files from previous versions.
  • Datto support does not have the ability to look through your snapshots to determine if the files you need to restore can be found at a particular date.


1. Sign into 

2. Allow the portal to load. Loading time can vary depending on how many Datto Drive are running.

3. Select the subdomain you wish to manage.

4. Click the Manage tab for the subdomain. At the bottom of the page you will see a calendar with available dates. These dates correspond to a PiT backup of your Datto Drive.

5. The text displayed as "Restoring Account..." Will turn green and state Restore Completed Successfully when complete.
