Performing 1-Click File Restore

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.

Performing 1-Click File Restore Important!

  1. 1-Click file restore capability is available if you have Enterprise or Enterprise Plus edition.
  2. 1-Click guest OS files restore from any storage snapshot is not supported by Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager.

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.

Performing 1-Click File Restore Note:

  1. If you plan to restore a file from a machine backed up without guest indexing, consider that for restore operation this machine 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 machine, no interim mount operations are needed.
  2. If you want Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager to display symbolic links to folders when browsing through the machine file system at 1-click file restore, then you should enable indexing in the backup job for that machine (running Linux or other non-Windows OS).
