File restore -

I was getting ready to setup veeam to tape not realizing this issue. This is a major feature needed. Veeam to tape is useless without it for me.

+1 from here. Coming from BE too, you shouldn't have to restore 6Tb of data to recover a couple of small files :D

File level restore from tape would be amazing, but I would still be happy if I had to restore entire VMs and then mount those to access the files.

I would like this feature as well would allow me to put more vms in a big file server job and not have to worry about restoring the entire 4TB VBK. I would also like to say that I finally was able to stop using netvault and move to veeam tape and although definitely some tweaks are needed we are moving in the right direction with it.

Ryan,
more vms in a big file server job and not have to worry about restoring the entire 4TB VBK.
So you need the ability to recover a single VM, instead of file level recovery from vm on tape, right?

How about both =).... file restore would be very nice as usually if I'm having to go back that far on tape it is because of a file restore. So day to day operations file level restore off a tape would be ideal.

If I look at it more at a disaster recovery level where I need to start recovering entire VMs then I would go the other way.

If I could just restore files instead of a VMs I don't think I would be comfortable writing that much to tape until I could restore just VMS. If I could restore VMS and not files then I would increase the size of my VBKs since I'm no worse off when restoring files off tape

Also we are running LTO5 and I'm hoping to skip LTO6 and move to LTO7 when it comes out. When I do that I could also be more comfortable increasing the size of the VBK file.

Clear as mud?

+1 with rklingaman - if a restore of a VM is needed but it is in a multi TB VBK, it will take forever (and require 4TB of 'buffer' space) even if it is a small VM. Having both options would be ideal - being able to restore just the VM we need, as well as being able to restore just the files needed if required.

I as well could use this feature. File level would be preferred but VM level could be adequate.

Please add me to this too.
File level restore from tape would help me a lot.

Thanks

+1 too here. We've got several big file server that we archive to tape. Restoring a single 5TB VDK for for a couple of files complicates the restore procedures a lot.
