Profile disk RDS - restore single item

Post by frankive » Jun 27, 2016 7:15 am

Hi.
Is it possible to restore single items files from the profile disc(.vhdx) in a 2012 R2 RDS environment or will we have to restore the .vhdx file and mount it manuelly?

Hi,

If the profile disk is in the backup then you should be able to perform FLR from it.

Thanks

No, we can not perform FLR. Remember the user profile disc is a .vhdx file which resides inside the .vhdx file which is the VM-drive.
It is nested .vhdx

Yes, in this case you should first restore the vhdx and then mount it manually.

If your backup server is 2012R2, you may want to mount this vhdx to backup server directly from FLR folder. It will save your time copying whole file, but restore will be slower.

it worked fine to open the fle in explorer and then mount the .vhdx file without restoring the .vhdx first, the restore speed was ok :)
Thanks.
