After you find the necessary file, you can use Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager to restore it from backup with one click. You can choose to restore it to the original location or download it to the local machine.
Restore operations are only available to authorized users according to their security settings. Users with the Portal Administrator role can restore files both to the original location or download them to the local machine.
For users with the non-administrative roles, you can configure additional restriction settings. For example, you can prohibit restore operators to download files to the local machine – so they will be able to restore files to the original location only. Additionally, you can specify the types of files that can be restored by operators (this can be helpful if you want to limit operators’ access to sensitive data). For details, see Configuring Security Settings.
If you plan to restore a file from a VM backed up without guest indexing, consider that for restore operation this VM disk will be mounted directly from the backup in the repository to the mount server associated with that repository; if restoring from replica, it will be mounted to Veeam backup server. If restoring from an indexed VM, no interim mount operations are needed.
