Currently only VM can be restored directly from tape backup. Direct restore of individual file is on our radar. Thanks.

[MERGED] Feature Request - Restore Data from Tape

Veeam Logoby Wizzard » Mon Mar 19, 2018 6:22 am

Hey,

sometimes i have to restore data from tape. In that case i have to restore ALL the data to a disk repository first. Thats pretty bad when you have to restore files from a fileserver with more than 5-6 TB backup file size.

--> I want to restore the files directly from tape to reduce repository space and restore time (like arcserve does).

Also i want to see if the file is in the selected tape backup or not. -->
1) Catalog content of used GFS tapes on file level?
2) Then select that file and only restore that one.


Best Regards
Merlin

I run into the same issue as Wizzard. It would be nice to be able to restore directly from tape as a lot of times people need files that got accidently deleted 6 months ago and having to restore a 6TB VM to disk first just to restore 2-3 files makes the restore process long.

+1 for granular file restore from tapes.

Currently I'm restoring a whole fileserver VM back to repository to be able to then restore a single xls file from a year ago. Luckily I have space for it, but it will take a lot more time than I would like to.

Thank you!

You can use parallel processing for tape jobs, are you referring to parallel processing for recovery from tape?

Plus-one for me. I 100 percent agree with pawel's post. Good file backup and recovery for tape would be a game changer for us. But granular recovery from tape would be a nice feature.

Feature suggestion: better restore selector

Actually when restoring it's only possible to select one folder per task. Let's say I have 5 folders from A to E. Each folder contains 10 subfolders from 0 to 9.
If I want to restore all folders except C\5 I have to add:
- A
- B
- D
- E
- C\1
- C\2
- C\3
- C\4
- C\6
- C\7
- C\8
- C\9

It would be much better if it was possible to do a "select all" and then unflag C\5

PS: I'm using the free edition, if the feature is already available in the non-free edition, I apologize for the spam ;)
