My case may be irrelevant as what I have is: server: FreeBSD 9.3, bacula
5, still here is what I have on the server side for Windows 7 client:




[here I chose the client]

You are now entering file selection mode where you add (mark) and
remove (unmark) files to be restored. No files are initially added, unless
you used the "all" keyword on the command line.
Enter "done" to leave this mode.

cwd is: /

cd C:/Users/[username]/Documents


C:/Users/[username]/Documents/Visual Studio 2005/

dir "Visual Studio 2005"
drwxrwxrwx   1 root     wheel              0  2015-06-03 11:55:12 
C:/Users/[username]/Documents/Visual Studio 2005/

[looks like it doesn't like to show the content, but if I enter there,
I'll see stuff there, so now I just will add it to restore]

add "Visual Studio 2005"
4 files marked.



7 files selected to be restored.


So, in my case the files are there. What happens it you use "add" command
to add directory containing the fires you need to restore?
