	bool selectedForRestore


Type: SystemGuid
Writer identifier.
Type: Alphaleonis.Win32.VssVssComponentType
Type of the component.
Type: SystemString

The logical path of the component. For more information, see Logical Pathing of Components.

The value of the string containing the logical path used here should be the same as was used when the component was added to the backup set using AddComponent(Guid, Guid, VssComponentType, String, String).

The logical path can be .

There are no restrictions on the characters that can appear in a non-null logical path.

Type: SystemString

SetSelectedForRestore has meaning only for restores taking place in component mode.

SetSelectedForRestore Overload can only be called for components that were explicitly added to the backup document at backup time using AddComponent(Guid, Guid, VssComponentType, String, String). Restoring a component that was implicitly selected for backup as part of a component set must be done by calling SetSelectedForRestore Overload on the closest ancestor component that was added to the document. If only this component's data is to be restored, that should be accomplished through AddRestoreSubcomponent(Guid, VssComponentType, String, String, String, String); this can only be done if the component is selectable for restore.

This method must be called before PreRestore.
