Almost correct In fact backup files are mounted on the machine where FLR was started, however not all backup data is transferred but only data that is required for guest filesystem browsing. Once you select files for restore the second mount point is created on the mount server that is assigned to the backup repository where the backup belongs to.Assuming I want to restore a folder with 5GB of data from a file server: the files are being read via the location proxy, then send to the DC and then send back to the file server on site, resulting in 10GB which has to travel across the WAN, with slow WAN links this is a time consuming restore.
That were just two steps of the same workaround actually Why is EM not an option in your case? It was designed to simplify FLR procedure for indexed backups.Both work arounds where not really an option, but your previous post did get me thinking.
