File level restore on Windows: Drive letters wrong?

Post by awiesen » Sep 23, 2009 11:17 pm

I have a VM with two drives, C: and S:. (The S: drive was made very recently.) They're SCSI ID 0 and 2.

When I use Veeam 3.1.1's file level restore to browse my backup, I see the contents of the S: listed as C:, and the contents of the C: drive listed as D:. The files work fine (I can see the files I care about) but it's weird that the drive letters are off.

Alex, yes this is a known issue (documented in the Release Notes).
File Level Restore
• Backup Browser may show different drive letters than in the actual VM.
The reason is that our file level restore does not pull drive letter assignment information from the registry at restore time...

Hi Gostev, has this issue been resolved, I'm still getting it on version 5.0.1 ?

No, and we are not planning to address it in the short term. Thanks.
