Bare metal backup recovery question

One of our customer's servers was a physical box that we used VEB to back up with. The physical box died, so we don't have a machine to restore to. We have VBR installed on another server. Is it possible to use VBR to restore the backup to a VM?

Hi Patrick,

VBR allows to run ‘export as virtual disk’ and ‘file level recovery‘. If you want to restore the physical box to a VM you can run Bare Metal Recovery to a blank VM.
