At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, choose the data restore mode:

Entire computer — select this option if you want to restore the whole system image of your computer. In this case, Veeam Endpoint Backup will attempt to map volumes from the backup to existing computer volumes and will overwrite existing data with data restored from the backup.

System volumes only — select this option if you want to restore only system state data and the system volume (volume on which the Microsoft OS is installed). In this case, Veeam Endpoint Backup will restore the Microsoft Windows system partition and boot partition from the backup to your computer. For GPT disks on Microsoft Windows 8, 8.1, 10, 2012 and 2012 R2, Veeam Endpoint Backup will additionally restore the recovery partition.

Manual restore (advanced) — select this option if you want to choose what computer volumes you want to restore and manually allocate disk space on restored volumes. This option is recommended for users who have experience in working with Microsoft Windows disks and partitions.

To view the current disk allocations settings on your computer, at the bottom of the wizard click View automatically detected disk mapping.


If you restore data on another computer and there is not enough space on disk to embed volume data from the backup, you will not be able to restore data in the Entire computer mode. In this situation, you will have to use the Manual restore mode.

Choose Restore Mode
