Step 5. Start Recovery Session

In this article

    At the Summary step of the wizard, review summary information and click Start.

    As soon as you click Start, Veeam Backup for AWS will close the File-level Recovery wizard, start a recovery session and display the FLR Running Sessions window. During the recovery session,  Veeam Backup for AWS will launch a worker instance and attach EBS volumes of the processed EC2 instance to it.

    Tip

    If you accidentally close the FLR Running Sessions window, navigate to Protected Data > EC2 and click the link in the File-Level Recovery URL column to open the window again.

    In the FLR Running Sessions window you can track the progress of the recovery session. In the URL column of the window, Veeam Backup for AWS will display a link to the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser. You can use the link in either of the following ways:

    • Click the link to open the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser on your local machine while the recovery session is running.
    • Copy the link, close the FLR Running Sessions window and open the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser on another machine.

    Important

    When you click Copy FLR URL, Veeam Backup for AWS copies the following information to the clipboard:

    • A link to the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser includes a public DNS name of the worker instance hosting the browser and authentication information used to access the browser.
    • A thumbprint of a TLS certificate installed on the worker instance hosting the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser.

    To avoid a man-in-the-middle attack, before you start recovering files and folders, check that the certificate thumbprint displayed in the web browser from which you access the File Level Recovery for Veeam Backup browser matches the provided certificate thumbprint.
