If you choose to download the restored file, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager interacts with the Veeam backup server to extract the necessary file from a backup. The user who initiated file restore will be able to download the file to the local machine.
To restore a file to the local machine:
- Locate the necessary file using browse or search possibilities of Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager. For details, see Browsing Machine Backups for Guest OS Files or Searching Machine Backups for Guest OS Files.
- Click Download.
- In the displayed window, click Yes.
- Wait for restore session to complete and the file to be retrieved from the backup.
- In the Log tab of the File Restore History view, click the download link in the Restored files are available for download record of the session log.
Restored files are stored in ZipDownload package named FLR_<date>_<time>.zip by default in the Downloads folder. They are periodically cleaned up by Veeam Backup & Replication — files older than 24 hours are automatically deleted (built-in value).
