Because it is a workaround.Can you elaborate why the described workaround is not an option for you?
The Backup browser actually has a severe bug: If files/folders from guest operating systems are not restored to the original location, but copied to a different location (via "CopyTo" in backup browser), the names of the files and folders are changed by B&R! Leading dots are removed, which occur e.g. in configuration files of eclipse IDE. A backup solution must never change contents or names of files!)
You passed this in 02/2016 (!) to your QA Team.Will pass this to our QA team for deeper investigation.
- create a file named ".test" in a VM
- backup the VM
- restore guest file
- copy file to a different location than source location
- file will be copied but renamed to "test" (without leading dot)
This is a severe bug which probably can be fixed quite simple.
