Step 2. Select Restore Point

In this article

    At the Restore Point step of the wizard, select a restore point to be used to perform the restore operation for each selected instance, and exclude virtual disks that you do not want to restore.

    By default, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses the most recent valid restore point. However, you can restore the Azure VM disk to an earlier state.


    If you select a restore point stored in an archive repository and the same restore point is also available in a standard repository, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will display the confirmation window. To proceed, choose whether you want to use the archived or standard restore point to perform the restore operation.

    To select a restore point for an Azure VM, do the following:

    1. Select an Azure VM from the list and click Change Restore Point.
    2. In the Specify restore point window, select the necessary restore point and click Apply.

    To help you choose a restore point, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure provides the following information on each available restore point in the Backup Destination column:

    • <Repository Name> — an image-level backup created by a backup policy.
    • Snapshot — cloud-native snapshot.
