Importing Object Storage Backups

In case a disaster strikes and your Veeam Backup & Replication with a scale-out backup repository becomes unavailable, you can import into another Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure backups located in object storage repositories added as capacity or archive extents of the scale-out backup repository. Once you add the necessary object storage repositories in Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, you can import backups and they will become available for data recovery operations.


You do not need to import backups located in performance extents and standalone object storage repositories.

Consider the following:

  • The Import Backups option is available only if the object storage is not a part of the scale-out backup repository.
  • Before you start importing backups, make sure to add the object storage repository that stores data you want to import.
  • If you have imported backups from the object storage repository, you will not be able to select this repository as a capacity extent at the Add Capacity Tier and as an archive extent at the Add Archive Tier steps.
  • The Import Backups option is applicable only to the Capacity Tier and Archive Tier backups. It does not support the NAS backups.

To import backups, do the following:

  1. Launch Import Wizard
  2. Specify Password
  3. Wait for Import
  4. Finish Working with Wizard
