Still cant find it :-(


"You can resize a volume if you have chosen to restore data in the Manual mode and customize disk layout."
Cant find these options also.

I open Veeam endpoint backup
click the lastest backup (two days ago)
click restore volumes
select the most recent backup

and then I'm at disk mapping. Only option I got is Customize disk mapping, which only shows me the partitions on my computer.

Weird.. I have only "remove" option on right click.
Well I ended up using "restore files" option.

Thanks anyway!


E: is that screenshot from VEB client, or recovery media client?

This option is available in Veeam Recovery Media and Volume Level Recovery, just make sure you are running the latest 1.5 version.

Hi!

Dont have a recovery media. The request was to have this option on Veeam Endpoint Backup client :-)
It's a bit time consuming to start creating a media, boot the computer etc when you could just use the VEB client to restore the volume.

It's possible to resize the partition via Volume Level Restore too. Keep in mind that you can’t restore the volumes on top of the partition with operation system running.

How can I do this? This was a different set of disks, not OS disk/partition.
