Restoring Files and Folders

You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to restore individual files and folders from Veeam Agent backups.

The procedure of file-level restore from a Veeam Agent backup is similar to the same procedure for a VM backup. To learn more about file-level restore, see the Restore from Linux, Unix and Other File Systems section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.




Before you start file-level restore from a backup of a failover cluster, make sure that the cluster is added to a protection group in the Veeam Backup & Replication inventory. The failover cluster may be not present in the inventory, for example, in the following cases:

  • The original protection group that contained the cluster was removed from Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • You want to restore cluster data from a backup created on another backup server and imported in the Veeam backup console.

In this case, add the failover cluster whose data you want to restore to a protection group.

Before you perform file-level restore, check prerequisites. Then use the File Level Restore wizard to restore the necessary files and folders.

  1. Launch the File Level Restore wizard.
  2. Select a machine.
  3. Select a restore point.
  4. Specify a restore reason.
  5. Verify restore settings.
  6. Finalize restore.
