VM Files Restore

Veeam Backup & Replication can help you to restore specific VM files (.vmdk, .vmx and others) if any of these files are deleted or the datastore is corrupted. This option provides a great alternative to entire VM restore, for example, when your VM configuration file is missing and you need to restore it. Instead of restoring the whole VM image to the production storage, you can restore the specific VM file only.

When you perform VM file restore, VM files are restored from regular image-level backups. Veeam Data Movers deployed on the backup repository and the backup proxy retrieve VM data from the backup file and send it to the original VM location, or to a new location specified by the user.
