Restoring Files on a Linux Endpoint

This task assumes that your Linux environment supports the auto-mounting of USB drives. If your Linux environment does not support auto-mounting, refer to your Linux documentation to learn how to manually mount a USB device.

  1. Plug the Scanning Tool device into the target Linux endpoint on which you have "root" or "sudo" privilege.

    The endpoint auto-mounts the device and the TMPS3 DAT and TMPS3 SYS drives appear on the screen.

  2. Open the TMPS3 SYS drive.
  3. Right-click anywhere within the folder (but not on a file or folder icon) and click Open in Terminal.

    The terminal opens pointing to the TMPS3 SYS directory.

  4. Restore files on the endpoint through use of the following command structure:

    sudo sh ./ -c restore

    The Scanning Tool displays a list of previous scan logs for the endpoint.

  5. Type the scan log Index that you want to restore files from.

    The Scanning Tool displays a list of quarantined files.

  6. Type the quarantined file Index that you want to restore.

    The Scanning Tool restores the quarantined file to the endpoint.

  7. Portable Security displays the action result and saves the logs to the Scanning Tool device.
