Step 3. Mount Backup

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

veeamconfig backup mount --id <backup_id> --mountdir <path>


  • <backup_id> — ID of the backup that you want to mount to the computer file system for file-level restore.
  • <path> — path to the directory to which you want to mount the backup file content.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup mount --id ea64a7e5-038a-4c86-970a-6d59d4cf3968 --mountdir /mnt/backup
Backup is mounted.
