  • Restorations with sharing permissions will restore to the account of every user sharing the document; this affects files from both single and full account restores.
  • If you select to restore without sharing permissions, Backupify/Datto SaaS Protection will delete all permissions and the user receiving the restore will have ownership of the document.
