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 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 backup to the /mnt/backup directory.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig backup mount --id bd99e384-b62f-47dc-ad38-f0b3dc5d3c40 --mountdir /mnt/backup

Backup has been mounted.
