Restore single file

I have a Seafile server, and a backup server running R1soft. So, basically, it’s backing up all data at files level. However, it looks like Seafile doesn’t contain files as normal, but in multiple encryted blocks. Then, if a user deletes a file, even empty trash, how to restore that single file from R1soft server?

Only solution what I see is configure new seafile instant, change data folder position and there copy your backup. Then use Seafile FSCK to export library where is file and from export get the file.

It should work for copy&paste your production instant. Don’t have to run seafile server or seahub. Don’t have to install new database. Just copy&paste, change data folder location, copy there your backup and rest should work.
