Step 7. Open FLR Browser

    [This step applies only if you have selected the Browse files option at the Restore Type step of the wizard]

    Tip

    If you accidentally close the FLR Running Sessions window, navigate to Protected Data > EFS 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 browser. You can use the link in either of the following ways:

    • Click the link to open the file-level recovery 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 browser on another machine.

    Important

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

    • A link to the file-level recovery browser includes a public DNS name or an IP adress of the backup appliance hosting the browser and authentication information used to access the browser.
    • A thumbprint of a TLS certificate installed on the appliance hosting the file-level recovery 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 browser matches the provided certificate thumbprint.
