5.1.6 Restoring External InnoDB Tablespaces to Different Locations

When a backup contains external InnoDB tablespaces that resided outside of the backed-up server's data directory, you can restore them to locations different from their original ones by updating their path names in the tablespace_tracker file inside the backup; see description of the file in Table 1.1, “Types of Files in a Backup” for details.
