    1. Select the EC2 instance.
    1. If you want to specify a name for the restored EC2 instance, click Rename.

    In the Instance name window, specify the name and click Apply.

    When restoring an EC2 instance, Veeam Backup for AWS uses the original Amazon machine image (AMI) that was used to launch the source instance. If Veeam Backup for AWS cannot find the original AMI, an AMI recommended to launch the restored instance and the Change AMI button are displayed at the Settings step of the wizard. By default, Veeam Backup for AWS recommends an AMI whose configuration is similar to the configuration of the restored instance. However, you can choose another AMI that will be used to perform the restore operation. To do that, click Change AMI and select the necessary AMI in the Instance settings window.
