# Restoring Data

To perform restoration of Plesk hosting data, you should execute the `pleskrestore` utility command composed so that it does the following:

1. Defines the Plesk objects to be restored.
2. Defines how the restore process will be performed.
3. Defines conflict resolution rules and policies.

The following sections explains each component in detail.

The `pleskrestore` utility is located in `%plesk_dir%\bin\`
where `%plesk_dir%` is an environment variable for the Plesk installation directory. By default, it is `"C:\Program Files\Plesk\"`.

To see a list of the `pleskrestore` commands and options, refer to the section Restoration Utility Commands and Options.

If a restoration process fails, you can use its logs for troubleshooting. Each restoration process's logs are stored in `%plesk_dir%\PMMlogs\restore-YYYY-MM-DD-hh-mm-nnn`, where `YYYY-MM-DD-hh-mm `is the date and time when the restoration was performed and `nnn` is a randomly generated number.
