+1 to being able to use the bootable Recovery Media iso/usb, to not only be able to Restore but also take a Backup.

Functionality Addition for Future Releases

It would be nice to be able to backup using the bootable ISO, media as well as restoring. This way one does not need to install the full version of the software in the Windows environment.

+1 all the major manufacturers of backup software can do a backup with Recovery-CD.
Veeam should also be able to do this for VEB.

New feature idea for Recovery-CD

Veeam Logoby wsususer » Sun Jan 11, 2015 9:28 am

It would also make sense , if I can make a file level Restore with the Recovery CD , to be able to save my Backup-Data to another medium (another hard disk, Partition or USB drive).
Reason: If the PC that I have backuped, is defect , you can recover individual important data from the backups using the Recovery CD.

Other manufacturers solve it so that you can start on the Recovery CD a file explorer and can mount the backup as an additional drive.

you can say that you can't start a Recovery-CD from a faulty PC. :shock:
Therefore, the correction
Reason: If the Hard Disk from the PC that I have backuped, is defect , you can recover individual important data from the backups using the Recovery CD with built-in File-Level-Restore.
If the PC that I have backuped, is defect, I must have a way to boot with the the Recovery- CD with built-in File-Level-Restore from another PC and open my Recovery-files.

Hi Jurgen,

We are thinking already about a way of delivering file-level recovery through different options. I'll take your ideas with me to see what we can do about it.

There is only thing I don't understand...

Isn't it easier to have VEB running on that other PC and then just recover from the broken pc's backups?

Hello Mike
your question:
"Isn't it easier to have VEB running on that other PC and then just recover from the broken pc's backups?"

If I am dependent on another computer, I'm just a guest there, if it is not my own !
There may be reasons why VEB can not be installed on other PC or Servers.
If the other PC does not belong to me and the owner does not want to have VEB on his PC; then have a problem. I can only use his computer, if I change anything.
On the other PC or Server a Backup image program of some other manufacturer is already installed and I would not even install the Veeam Image program in addition.
Install VEB, restore broken pc's backups, deinstall VEB is not a nice solution.

look also to this Topic:
Feature Request: Backup Explorer for Endpoint
Veeam Logoby wsususer » Sun Jan 11, 2015 2:07 pm

I wish to have an Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe standalone GUI tool (extract the backup file if I can not use the main program).
Can also be integrated into the Recovery CD.
I find it unnecessary to install the product VEB on another computer, to get back the backup data in this case.

Absolutely Corby. By having this feature at your disposal you are not adding any additional footprint to the PC being backed up (no additional component, i.e., any variation of SQL will be added to the PC).
Even though not being considered for the v1 release, thank you in advance Anton for considering this feature at one point in the evolution of the product.

I am definitely casting my vote for being able to do a backup (image and / or file level) from the Veeam Recovery Media.
Seems that the last post here was almost a year ago.
I would like to ask the current status of this feature request?

Thanks
