Restoring vCloud vApps

You can restore the whole vApp from the backup to VMware vCloud Director.

vApps can be restored to their organization VDC or to any other organization VDC. You can restore the vApp that already exists, for example, in case the  vApp is corrupted or you want to revert to an earlier state of the vApp, or the vApp that no longer exists, for example, if it was deleted by mistake. If you restore a vApp that already exists, the vApp is overwritten with that from the vCD backup.
