In Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure, you can open files from the Azure VM guest file system. When you choose to open a file from a remote VM, the file is first downloaded to the Microsoft Windows TEMP folder on the machine where Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure is installed, and then opened with an associated application.


You cannot open in Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure files larger than 10 MB. If a file is too large to be opened, you can download it from an Azure VM and open it in a regular way.

Before you open a file, make sure that the Azure VM is connected to Veeam FastSCP for Microsoft Azure and running. For details on configuring connections to Azure VMs, see Connecting Azure VMs.

Click Open File on the ribbon.
