Guest OS File Recovery

You can use IFLR (Instant File-Level Restore) to recover individual VM guest OS files and folders from VM backups (Microsoft Windows and other file systems) and replicas (Microsoft Windows file systems). IFLR does not require you to extract the VM image to a staging location or start the VM prior to restore. You can restore files and folders directly from a regular image-level backup or replica to the necessary point in time.

IFLR works with any VM guest OS file system. Veeam Backup & Replication offers different tools and methods for different file systems:

Note that multi-OS file-level restore supports recovery of files and folders only. Recovery of other file system objects such as pipes is not supported.

  • Restore from Other File Systems: for file-level restore from file systems not supported by file-level restore wizards, you can leverage the Instant VM Recovery functionality.
