User Interface

The web-based user interface of Restore Portal is designed to let you quickly explore backed-up Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams data in one window. Also, it allows you to perform restore operations without using Veeam Explorers and view details about restore sessions progress and results and the restore sessions history.

The main window consists of the Explore, Restore Sessions and Restore List tabs.

Explore Tab

This tab contains the navigation and preview panes.

Navigation Pane

The navigation pane allows you to do the following:

For example, for a user object the following data can be displayed:

  • Exchange Online mailbox
  • Archive mailbox
  • OneDrive for Business
  • Personal Site (available only for restore operators)

For restore operators, Restore Portal displays data for user objects, SharePoint sites and teams that restore operators are allowed to explore.

Preview Pane

The preview pane allows you to view details about items that are contained in a folder you have selected in the navigation pane. Items are displayed according to the selected restore point. You can search items and select items that you want to restore or add to the restore list.
