Step 8. Restore Additional Files

In this article

    Before you reboot the machine upon successful bare-metal recovery, you may need to restore additional data from another backup. To do this, you can use the file-level restore functionality of the Recovery wizard. Veeam Agent mounts the backup file to the file system of the recovery image OS. After that, you can copy the necessary files or directories to a desired location.

    Step 8. Restore Additional Files Note

    If the additional files you want to restore are not required for correct system startup after reboot, you can perform file-level restore after you reboot the machine upon successful bare-metal recovery. In this case, follow the standard procedure as described in Restoring Files and Directories.

    To perform additional file-level restore using Recovery wizard, do the following:

    1. From the main menu of Veeam Recovery Media, select Restore files.
