How to restore moved backup file ?

Post by leiw » Nov 28, 2012 4:08 am

Hello,

I have been moved some backup file to another storage (because the existing storage not enough space), now I want to restore them by Veeam B&R, how to do that ?

Thanks

You need to import these files back to the backup console (using "Import" button functionality) and then perform the restore. Also if you've moved these files to another repository, you may want to hit the "Rescan" button on that repository to populate your backup console with these files. Hope this helps!

Hello,

The Veeam B&R version is 5.0, so no repository, so I have to use import feature ?

Thanks

Correct. Alternatively, you can use extract.exe utility coming with your Veeam B&R installation to restore VMs from any VBK file, even without the product installed.
