Can OwnBackup restore Audit fields?

    Yes, Objects in Salesforce have audit fields (CreatedByID, CreatedDate, LastModifiedbyID, LastModifiedDate) that are read-only by default as they are populated by Salesforce upon creation or modifications of records. If you would like to restore Audit fields, you can do that from the Salesforce.com setup page:  Enable "Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation" and "Update Records with Inactive Owners" 

    More information can be found in the following KB article:

    • Note: OwnBackup uses the latest available backup to determine the schema of the Org, and accordingly whether certain fields/sObjects are read-only. Therefore, make sure to force a backup upon Salesforce’s enabling read-write access to the audit-fields.
