Understanding File restores

Hello everyone,

I am really struggling to understand the process of an OS file restore and as a result am struggling to put the API calls together in the correct order.

What I have done so far is :

    1. Identify the URN of the restore point

I can see that the second command kicks off a job called FLR_[windows] which is what I would expect. From here I want to be able to see the mounts points in that restore point, so I do

which returns a variable called "VmRestorePointsMounts" but it is empty when I would expect it to contain a list of mount points??

Can anyone correct me please.

Once you've identified the required restore point, you need to send the POST HTTP request to the its browse action, instead of issuing POST request to /mounts resource. Kindly, check this example. Thanks.
