Feature Request: Restore only security

Veeam Logoby dwbrewer » Mon Nov 07, 2016 6:29 pm

Backup Exec has a restore option to restore only the security information and file system permissions for files that exist at the destination; do not restore the file content.
Sometimes administrators check to role the file permissions down from top incorrectly.

Daniel,

That is interesting. As you know we cannot do that today and if you want to do this, you need to restore the files, including the ownership and other permissions.

I am not sure if I understood your use case correctly. Could you elaborate (and if you have more use cases, that would be appreciated!)

Thanks

Mike

I'd also like this feature. Many times the owner of a folder has mucked up subfolder permissions only by simply ticking the wrong box.

When restoring in Commvault, you get the option for Restore ACLs Only, Restore Data Only, Restore Both Data and ACLs.

We have to keep using Commvault for this reason and others as Veeams FLR is much slower and the restore options are limited.

Mark,

Thanks for the use case. Any change to elaborate on the "restore options are limited" besides that we can't restore ACLs alone? Are we missing other important features?
