Before You Begin

Before you begin the volume-level restore process, check the following prerequisites:

  • The volume-level backup from which you plan to restore data must be successfully created at least once.
  • [For backups stored in network shared folders and on Veeam backup repositories] You must have access to the target location where the backup file resides.

Volume-level restore has the following limitations:

  • You cannot restore the system volume to its original location.
  • You cannot restore a volume to the volume on which the Linux swap space is hosted.
  • You cannot restore a volume to the volume where the backup file that you use for restore is located.

To overcome the first two limitations, you can boot from the recovery image and use the Veeam Recovery Media tools for volume-level restore. To learn more, see Restoring from Veeam Recovery Media.
