Restore files directly to bare metal

Hello friends, I created this post to know if anyone else here in the group that uses the PBS client on Debian bare metal has had the need to restore the backed up files directly on the host after a problem?

I say this because today I use Duplicati on some clients to backup data in the cloud, but I uploaded a PBS at OVH to backup some servers of offsite clients and thought about the possibility of backing up the VPS I have on the same PBS and centralizing backups in it for easy notification of potential issues.

After doing the backup test that worked perfectly, I found it difficult to restore the files that as far as I saw I only have the option to download directly in the browser, but that way I would lose all permissions of the files and I would still have the double work of moving the restored files from my machine to the VPS in case of problems.

If you see that it's something that more users of the tool use, it would be an option to see the possibility of asking the Proxmox team to add the functionality to restore data directly on hosts using proxmox-backup-client as well.
