Restore vbk without a full installation of VEB

Veeam Logoby Leitner » Wed Mar 23, 2016 8:36 am

Hello,

is there any way to restore data from a vbk file without a full installation of VEB (in an emergency case)?
I've tested to restore the vbk with the "Veeam.Backup.Extractor.exe".
But the results are only 3 files (1x in the size of the HDD and two digest_* files).

Is there a standalone version of the Backup Browser available?

Best Regards
Patrick

Hello Patrick, have you tried to use Recovery Media for this purpose?

Hello Vitaliy,

thanks for reply.
I've tested the Recovery Media.
All in all it's good for this purpose. But there I can recover only whole disks.

Best Regards

Yes, for FLR purposes existing/another VEB installation is needed.

Leitner,

By the way, if you use Veeam Backup and Replication repository as a backup target you can run file level recovery from the main backup console.

Thank you Dima, I know.

I'm still working on my disaster plan, in the case my backupserver is also crashed.
I regularly save my whole backupserver (where also VBR is running) on external drives with VEB.
Therefore I asked this questions!

Regards

You are welcome Patrick. By the way, there is a good article in Help Center describing all types or recovery in VBR for endpoint backups, worth checking: Using with Veeam Backup & Replication > Performing Restore Tasks
