Restore of SQL in Veeam Agent for Windows Server

As Veeam Agent for Windows Server can do application aware backup, I guess You can do restore of these items to.
But I can't find any information on this in the docs (except when You use VBR as the backup location)

Anyone that has used this functionality that can help me?

Hello JonArne,

You can restore SQL items using Veeam Explorer for SQL, so frankly speaking Veeam B&R is required to perform application item recovery.

So without B&R, the only option is to restore the mdf and ldf?

Correct. Without Veeam B&R, file level recovery is the only option.

Is this the same for Exchange Data?

I thought there was a MDB standalone tool to read the MDB Database but perhaps that was a 3rd party tool?

Is it possible then to install Veeam Backup Free Edition to get access to the Exhange\SQL explorers and restore data? I just don't know how it would restore data\email to a single physical server SBS for example or would you be limited to exporting to a PST which would be good enough in most cases?

Thanks
