If you're going to create a duplicate thread about this, then especially given that you've already confirmed that this is not currently possible with Reflect, I would suggest that you create your duplicate thread in the Wish List section.
But even if this isn't relevant to your use case, I can see some barriers to implementing this. F&F backup jobs allow you to specify multiple source folders that can be completely independent of each other. For example, in a single job I can back up C:\Users\MyUserAccount\Desktop\MyStuff as well as D:\MyOtherStuff. If I wanted to restore all of the data from that backup into a single new folder that is different from any of the original source folders, what folder hierarchy would you suggest that Reflect create in that scenario given the completely different original sources of the data in the backup? And even in your simpler case, it seems you want to restore a subfolder from your original backup into a new folder. Well how is Reflect supposed to know which folder within your original backup's hierarchy should be treated as the "top-level" folder for the purposes of your redirected restore? In your case, you clearly want the Documents subfolder from your backup to be treated as the top-level folder when restored into your new Documents folder, but that won't be everyone's use case. What if someone wanted your Test1 folder to be treated as the top-level folder for restore purposes, i.e. they didn't want the "Drive" and "Users" folders to be created, but they DID want the Documents folder to be created as a subfolder in the redirected destination? Reflect doesn't have a way to know that your new Documents folder has any functional correspondence to the original folder of the same name in your backup. The fact that an enhancement seems like an obvious improvement for your use case doesn't mean it would be easy to implement when considering the reality of other use cases out there.
All that said, Reflect V8 will at least be removing the limitation around handling files larger than 4GB within mounted F&F backups. So once that arrives, you would simply be able to mount the backup as a virtual drive, and from there you can use Windows Explorer or whatever other file management application/utility you want in order to perform whatever sort of copy operations you want.
