Step 2. Select Restore Point
By default, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses the most recent valid restore point. However, you can restore the Azure VM 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:
- Select an Azure VM from the list and click Restore Point.
- In the Select Restore Point window, select the necessary restore point and click Select.
To help you choose a restore point, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure provides the following information on each available restore point:
- Created — the date when the restore point was created.
- Backup Destination — the type of the restore point:
- <Repository Name> — an image-level backup. If you select this option, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will launch a worker instance.
- Snapshot — a cloud-native snapshot.
