#3136 closed defect (duplicate)

Restore should extract into Journal

Restore currently copies the the backup into the Journal and then restores from that file. The backup file itself can be large and on resource constrained devices, XO-1, can fill the Journal prior to restore. Restore should directly extract from the USB drive rather then first copying the backup file into the Journal.

Dupe of #496. This is a shortcoming in Sugar (which does the copying before Restore is even started). However icarito and I are working on providing a workaround by implementing a custom Object Chooser that directly access the storage device. Backup already does this for writing the backup bundle, so we only need to generalise this a bit and wire it up in Restore. See also #2373.
