Downloading Data from Capacity Tier

In Veeam Backup & Replication, you can manually download offloaded backups back to the performance extents.

You can download one backup at a time using the Copy to Performance Tier option, or get all offloaded backups in bulk using the Download feature. For more information, see Downloading Single Backup Chain and Downloading All Backups.
