You can restore specific VM files from the backup: VMDK, VMX and others. VM file restore can be helpful, for example, if one or several VM files have been deleted or corrupted and you need to replace them on the production storage. Veeam Backup & Replication lets you restore the necessary VM file directly from the image-level backup, without prior de-staging of the VM image from the backup file.
Before restoring VM files from the backup, check prerequisites. Then use the Virtual Machine Files Restore wizard to restore VM files.
- Launch the Restore wizard
- Select a VM
- Select a restore point
- Select VM files and destination
- Specify a restore reason
- Finish working with the wizard
