Restore is a "smart" atom bomb.
A Restore only recalls/replaces files that are different than the captured version in the archive.
QRecall compares the file information (size, attributes, modification dates, etc.) against the same item in the archive. If they are identical, QRecall assumes the file hasn't changed and doesn't need to be recalled. This is the same test used to determine if the file has changed during a capture.
