Performing File Share Restore

In case a disaster strikes, you can recover corrupted or missing files of an Azure file share from a cloud-native snapshot. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure allows you to restore files and folders to the original file share or to another file share.

How File Share Restore Works

To restore files and folders of an Azure file share, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure performs the following steps:

  1. On the backup appliance, restores the file share tree.
  2. Launches the File-level recovery browser.

The File-level recovery browser displays the file tree of the backed-up file share. In the browser, you can specify the necessary restore point, and select files and folders that will be restored.

  1. Restores the specified backed-up files and folders from the restore point to the selected file share.
