Restoring VM Guest OS Files (FAT, NTFS, ReFS)

You can restore individual files from the backup of a Microsoft Windows VM. For this purpose, Veeam Backup & Replication provides the File-Level Restore wizard.

Before You Begin

Consider the following:

  • You can restore guest OS files from a backup that has at least one successfully created restore point.

To check whether restore points are created, open the inventory pane of the Home view and select the Backups node. Then, expand the backup job and verify that there is at least one restore point available for the VM.

  • You cannot restore files from reverse incremental backups.
  • You cannot restore files from a VM being currently backed up or replicated.

Restoring Guest OS Files

To restore guest OS files from a Microsoft Windows VM:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backups > Disk node. Expand a backup job in the working area, right-click a VM and choose Restore guest files > Microsoft Windows to launch the File Level Restore wizard.
