For more information, see the Application Item Restore section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  • Go to Start, click Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint and manually open Microsoft SharePoint databases. For more information, see Standalone Databases.

When you open Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint from the Start menu, all backed-up databases will be loaded automatically.
