If you ever need to restore files to your IronKey, the steps below may assist with recovering data to a "Legacy" IronKey drive.

  1. Plug your IronKey into your computer and unlock it.
  2. In the IronKey Control Panel, click on "Secure Backup".
  3. In the Secure Backup application, click on Restore Files from my Local Computer?.
  4. Now you can select the files you want to restore and click "Restore Now".
  5. If your files were encrypted by a different IronKey, you will be asked to enter that password in order to decrypt the files. Enter the password used to unlock that IronKey at the time the data was encrypted.

 Your files are now restored to your "Legacy" IronKey drive.

*Please note: This option is for Legacy IronKey drives only. Current models do not support this feature.
