Performing Disk Restore

In case a disaster strikes, you can restore corrupted virtual disks of an Azure VM from a cloud-native snapshot or image-level backup. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure allows you to restore virtual disks to the original location or to a new location.

Before You Begin

To restore a virtual disk from a backup that is stored in an archive repository, you must retrieve the archived data first. You can either retrieve the archived data manually before you begin the restore operation, or launch the data retrieval process right from the restore wizard.
