We have a ~1.5Tb file server and staff regularly delete folders but they usually don't tell us for a few months. We have local backups with additional copies offsite with retention of up to 5 months (reverse incrementals). Currently its taking us a long time to work out which backup the file/folder was in last. This usually involves a process of binary chopping where we mount the most recent backup and if its not in there we mount the oldest one and then try half way between the two etc until we narrow it down to a day. This means we're mounting about 10 different backups to find the most recent copy of the data in the file level restore explorer.
We've got the guest level indexing on so we can find specific files within a backup but it doesn't show us which backup it will restore it from so we can't determine which backup set the entire folder is in.
Am I missing something? Is there a feature which will allow us to quickly
identify the most recent copy of a deleted folder on the backup?
In a competitor product, whilst the software was bad, we did have a nice feature of being able to browse to the folder and then see a list of what media the folder was on and then chose one to restore from, we don't seem to be able to do this at folder level in Veeam even in the enterprise console as it'll only let you select a file not a folder.
I'm hoping i'm missing something or this will turn into a feature request
