Item recovery includes the following methods:
- VM files restore — to restore VM files (.VMX, .VMXF and so on) without restoring the entire VM.
- Guest OS file recovery — to recover individual guest OS files from Windows, Linux, Mac and other guest OS file systems. You can restore files and folders directly from a regular image-level backup, storage snapshot or replica.
- Application items restore — to restore items from different applications such as Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server and so on. Application items are recovered directly from VM backups and replicas. To recover application items, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the capabilities of Veeam Backup Explorers.
