Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint allows you to perform documents restore from virtualized Microsoft SharePoint Servers backed up by Veeam. It gives you the ability to browse Microsoft SharePoint content database and recover the necessary items (such as libraries, documents, images, webpages and so on) without a need to fully restore and start the virtual machine hosting SharePoint content database. Instead, you can use Veeam Backup & Replication data recovery options to quickly extract the necessary Microsoft SharePoint content database file (.MDF) from the virtualized server image-level backup, and then use Veeam Explorer to find and restore the documents you need.
Available with all editions of Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint provides granular browsing and searching capabilities to find any item or a bunch of items stored in any number of Microsoft SharePoint content databases. You can save such items to a local folder or a network drive or send them as e-mail attachments.
With Veeam Backup & Replication Enterprise and Enterprise Plus edition, you can also use Veeam Explorer to restore required items to the original or different SharePoint server; authorized users (for example, Microsoft SharePoint administrators) can also import content database files (exported by Veeam Explorer) to SharePoint database using PowerShell cmdlets.
