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

    As soon as you click Start, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will close the Azure Files File-Level Recovery wizard, start a restore session and display the File-Level Recovery window.

    Tip

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

    In the File-Level Recovery window, you can track the progress of the restore session. In the URL column of the window, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will display a link to the File-Level Restore browser. You can use the link in either of the following ways:

    • Click the link to open the File-Level Restore browser on your local machine while the restore session is running.
    • Copy the link, close the File-Level Recovery window and open the File-Level Restore browser on another machine.

    Important

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

    • A link to the File-Level Restore browser the includes a public DNS name of the backup appliance hosting the browser and authentication information used to access the browser.
    • A thumbprint of a TLS certificate installed on the backup appliance hosting the File-Level Restore browser.

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