VM Files Restore

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication can help you to restore VM files (.VMX, .VMXF, .NVRAM, .VMDK including flat files) 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 are deployed on the backup repository and the backup proxy retrieves VM data from the backup file and sends it to the original VM location, or to a new location specified by the user.
