  2. Run Microsoft Azure Backup agent.
  3. Click Restore Data on the right panel. 
  4. Run the Recover Data Wizard. Select This server
  5. Click Select Recovery Mode and then Individual files and folders. 
  6. Next, select volume the backup will be taken from, the date and time of backup and click Mount
  7. Click Browse
  8. Browse for files to be recovered. If you are recovering from the SQL server Backup folder, select it at this step (all the previous steps related to Azure backup can be omitted in this case).
    Do not close the Recover Data Wizard when browsing. 
  9. Restore Candidate Self-Service folders to inetpub, create API and APP sites in IIS, check configuration files. Get back to Recover Data Wizard and click Unmount.
