Step 3. Mount Restore Point

To mount a backup for file-level restore, use the following command:

veeamconfig point mount --id <point_id> [--mountdir <path>]


  • <point_id> — ID of the restore point that you want to mount to the machine file system for file-level restore.
  • <path> — path to the directory to which you want to mount the backup file content. If you do not specify the path with the --mountdir option, Veeam Agent will mount the restore point to the /mnt/backup directory.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig point mount --id 530843a2-5b7d-4a12-9718-b8d9a66b6a70 --mountdir /mnt/backup

Restore point is mounted.
