Using the Extract Utility via GUI

To start the extract utility via GUI:

  1. Run the Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe file from the installation folder of Veeam Backup & Replication. The extract utility will be started.
  2. In the VBK file field, specify a path to the full backup file from which you want to restore VM(s).
  3. If the backup file is encrypted, the extract utility will require you to provide a password to unlock the backup file. Enter the password that was used for backup file encryption.
  4. In the Extract folder field, specify a path to the destination folder to which the VM files must be extracted.
  5. From the Virtual machines list, select the VM(s) that must be extracted.
  6. Click Extract. The VM files will be extracted to the specified folder.

Using the Extract Utility via GUI Important!

The extract utility working via the GUI has the following limitations:

  • The extract utility can be started on Microsoft Windows machines only.
  • If you plan to start the extract utility on the machine other than the backup server, make sure that you copy the Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe file together with the extract.exe file from the product installation folder and store these files to the same folder on the destination machine. In the opposite case, the extract utility will fail to start.
