Restore from Backup Copy

You can restore from backups and backup copies. To restore from backup copies, you must enable the restore from backup copy option in the Veeam Plug-in wizard.

Important

Mind the following:

  • If the restore from backup copy option is enabled, you cannot back up databases using Veeam Plug-in, and you cannot restore from backups created by primary Veeam Plug-in backup jobs. You can restore only from backup copy files until you disable the restore from backup copy option.
  • You can restore from Veeam Plug-in backups using Veeam Explorer for Oracle, even if the restore from backup copy option is enabled.
  • If you want to restore from a backup copy to another server, see Restore to Another Server.
