How Disk Restore Works

When you run a disk restore, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure does the following:

  1. Retrieves backed-up Azure VHDs from either a backup repository or snapshot. You can select a backup source from which to perform a disk restore at the Restore Point step of the Disk Restore wizard.

To retrieve backed-up VHDs, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses the following APIs:

  • Blob Service REST API — to retrieve managed VHDs from snapshots.
  • Azure Compute API — to retrieve unmanaged VHDs from snapshots.
  • Veeam VM Backup API — to retrieve managed and unmanaged VHDs from a backup repository.

For more information about managed and unmanaged VHDs in Microsoft Azure, see this Microsoft article.

  1. Attaches backed-up VHDs to the target Microsoft Azure VM.
