Performing Volume Restore

In case a disaster strikes, you can restore corrupted EBS volumes of an EC2 instance from a cloud-native snapshot, snapshot replica or image-level backup. Veeam Backup for AWS allows you to restore EBS volumes to the original location or to a new location.


Veeam Backup for AWS does not attach restored EBS volumes to any EC2 instances — the volumes are placed to the specified location as standalone EBS volumes.

How to Perform Volume Restore

To restore EBS volumes attached to a protected EC2 instance, do the following:

  1. Launch the Volume Restore wizard.
  2. Select a restore point.
  3. Specify data retrieval settings for archived backups.
  4. Specify restore settings.
  5. Choose a restore mode.
  6. Enable encryption for EBS volumes.
  7. Specify the restored EBS volume name.
  8. Specify a restore reason.
  9. Finish working with the wizard.
