Restoring SharePoint Sites

The following steps describe how to restore SharePoint sites to the specified location:

  1. Select the necessary site in the hierarchy on the left and use the Restore Site command from its shortcut or ribbon menu.

Restoring SharePoint Sites 

  1. Specify target SharePoint site URL and choose a user account to connect to the SharePoint server. You can use your current account or another one, specified in the domain\username format. Make sure the account has sufficient rights to access specified target SharePoint site (Full Control required). See the Required Permissions section.

Restoring SharePoint Sites Note:

When using ADFS as authentication provider, consider that in case of Windows Authentication you can either use your current account or another specified account; in case of Forms Authentication you can only use the second option and specify user name and password.

Restoring SharePoint Sites 

  1. Next, specify the restore options. By default, all these options are enabled (including restore of changed and deleted items, permissions and subsites).
  • If Restore permissions option is cleared, then permissions for the recovered site/collection will be inherited from the parent (root site) on target SharePoint where it is recovered.
  • If Restore subsites option is cleared, then restored site will contain only document libraries and lists (subsites hierarchy and content will not be recovered).

Restoring SharePoint Sites 

  1. Click Restore and wait for the restore process to complete.

Restoring SharePoint Sites Note:

Using Veeam Explorer, you can restore sites to the corresponding site collections existing on target. However, new site collection creation will not be supported (sites cannot be restored to a collection presented in the backup but does not exist on target). Also, consider some other site restore peculiarities described in the Considerations and Limitations section.
