Restore from Other File Systems

You can restore file systems other than those listed in section Guest OS File Restore. For this purpose, use the Instant Disk Recovery technology.

To restore files and folders, do the following:

  1. In the virtual infrastructure, find a VM that can read the file system of the original VM.
  2. Use Instant Disk Recovery to mount a disk of the original VM to the VM that can read the file system.
  3. Open the VM console, bring the disk to the online mode.
  4. Copy the required files.
  5. If you no longer need the disk, stop publishing it.

Alternatively, you can mount the VM disks to a Microsoft Windows VM and use file management tools.
