Copy only backups should not be included in the restore list
Backups made with the copy only option checked should not be included in the backup history list of databases when restoring by default. The copy backup is used to maintain the sequence of logs so I dont think these should be shown in the
Agree with Jonathan and Andrew, option is best as we take full COPY_ONLY backups from Production and restore for parallel testing.

If it could be the other way round. Have the option to filter copy only backups out on by default and then remove the filter to show the copy only backups
There might be some use cases where this behaviour might be desired. Whilst I have raised an enhancement request (SB-4934), what we might do is add a option to filter this out of the activity history rather than always hide them.
