Deleted vbm file

Deleted vbm file

Veeam Logoby mfo » Sat Jul 01, 2017 6:17 pm

I somehow lost my vbm file from my backup folder. Now, when I want to restore some files by opening the vbk file, I just get the message: "Veeam Backup is unable to open backup files created by Veaam Backup and Replication".

Any way to recreate the vbm file?
I do have a second backup folder from this maschine with a working vbm file, if this is of any use.

Hello Cristoph,
try this powershell script to re-create the vbm file.

To clarify, which product produced said backup file - Veeam Agent for Windows (Veeam Endpoint Backup) or Veeam Backup and Replication backup files. Thanks in advance.
