Step 3. Specify Data Retrieval Settings
[This step applies only if you have selected to restore from the archived restore point]
At the Data Retrieval step of the wizard, choose a retrieval mode and specify a period for which you want to keep the data available. To do that:
- In the Retrieval mode section, click the link.
- In the Retrieval settings window, for each processed EC2 instance, do the following:
- Select an EC2 instance and click Edit.
- In the Edit Retrieval Mode window, select the retrieval mode that Veeam Backup for AWS will use to retrieve the archived data, and click Save. For more information on data retrieval modes, see Retrieving Data From Archive.
- To save changes made to the data retrieval settings, click Apply.
- In the Availability period section, click Edit Availability Period.
- In the Availability settings window, specify the number of days for which you want to keep the data available for restore operations.
If the time period expires while a restore operation is still running, the restore operation will fail. To work around the issue, you can instruct Veeam Backup for AWS to send an email notification when data is about to expire, and manually extend the availability period if required. To receive the notification, select the Send email notification check box and specify the number of hours before data expiration when the notification must be sent.
- To save changes made to the availability period settings, click Apply.
