File-Level Restore

If you have lost or modified files and directories on your machine by mistake, you can restore a copy of the necessary objects from the backup.

Veeam Agent does not simply extract files and directories from the backup file. Instead, Veeam Agent mounts backup file content to the mount point directory in the machine's file system. You can specify a directory in which Veeam Agent will mount the backup content.

After the backup content is mounted, you can use Oracle Solaris command line utilities or preferred file browser to work with restored files and directories. You can browse for files and directories in the mounted backup and copy them to their initial location or to a new location.
