Restore a file from Tape

Veeam Logoby amajer » Mon Jul 20, 2015 10:16 am

Hello Guys,

I have Veeam B&R 8.0 (version 8.0.0.917) Standard.
Some pst files stored on our Windows 2008 Server where Veeam Backup server installed. Monthly basis I back this psts up to tape among with other vbk files.
I wanted to restore one pst file from 2 month ago so I categorized a tape which contains that file and I can see this file on the tape.
If I go into Restore ->Tape ->Restore Files I cannot chose that particular file from that tape. I've got a filelist from my server and I can chose that file, but it says I need the last Tape to restore. But I need to restore an older version of that file.
Can someone help, how can I restore a file from Tape? Maybe I missed some steps to restore it.

Many Thanks,
amajer

What happens if you go to the Files node, select an exact file you want to and then specify the desired backup set file should be restored from in the restoration wizard?

Hi v.Eremin,
You know something :)
I didn't realized that I have to double click on the file itself to see the backup sets where I can chose the older versions.
Thanks for your help, I'm appreciated. I've just restored the file.

Many thanks
