Restoring Guest OS Files

In this article

    The Files tab of vSphere Self-Service Backup Portal allows you to browse the guest OS file system in a VM backup and restore individual files. You can restore files from indexed and non-indexed guest OS file systems.

    To restore files from a VM guest file system, go to the Files tab and follow the 1-click restore procedure. This procedure does not differ from the same procedure performed in the main Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager UI. For details, see Performing 1-Click File Restore.


    Consider the following:

    • If you restore files from a non-indexed VM guest OS, the mount operation will be performed using the mount server assigned to the backup repository that contains the backup of the VM.
    • If you restore files from a Linux VM, consider the recommendations provided in this article.

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
