The following example shows how to use the SPRestoreSettings class in a restore operation. For the full example and a detailed discussion of it, see How to: Programmatically Restore Content.

static void Main(string[] args)
{
    // Create the restore settings.
    SPRestoreSettingssettings = SPBackupRestoreSettings.GetRestoreSettings(@"\\Server\WSSBackups", "Overwrite");

    // Identify the content component to restore.
    Console.Write("Enter name of component to restore (default is whole farm):");
    settings.IndividualItem = Console.ReadLine();
    
    // Set optional operation parameters.
    settings.IsVerbose = true;
    settings.UpdateProgress = 10;
    
    // Create the restore operation and return its ID.
    Guid restore = SPBackupRestoreConsole.CreateBackupRestore(settings);

    SPBackupRestoreObject node = EnsureUniqueValidComponentName(settings, ref restore);

    if (node != null)
    {
        // Set the restore as the active job and run it.
        if (SPBackupRestoreConsole.SetActive(restore) == true)
        {
            if (SPBackupRestoreConsole.Run(restore, node) == false)
            {
                // Report "error" through your UI.
                String error = SPBackupRestoreConsole.Get(restore).FailureMessage;
                Console.WriteLine(error);
            }
        }
        else
        {
            // Report through your UI that another backup
            // or restore operation is underway. 
            Console.WriteLine("Another backup or restore operation is already underway. Try again when it ends.");
        }

        // Clean up the operation.
        SPBackupRestoreConsole.Remove(restore);

        Console.WriteLine("Restore attempt complete. Press Enter to continue.");
        Console.ReadLine();
    }
}// end Main
