you could start a single file restore on your Veeam server, until the point where the restore browser is open - this gives you the backup mounted in your Veeam server under c:\VeeamFLR\

Just leave the restore browser open, you can access the mounted restore point directory directly with robocopy and other tools - which gives you the full power of those tools for special restore operations :-)

Sebastian is spot on, this is a workaround that is typically suggested in such cases. Thanks for the feedback though.

[MERGED] Feature request

When restoring (especially when hit by ransomware), choose to only overwrite newer filer/older files etc.
Either we keep or we overwrite. Its of no use in that usage scenario

I would also like to see a Skip Newer Files or Restore Only Missing Files feature added. The work around is a work around, but we have 2 shares that are approximately 2.2TB each. When random folders/files are encrypted it would be nice to have this as a right-click restore option instead of needing to use robocopy/xcopy from a mount. Especially if the restore is performed by someone not well versed in robocopy/xcopy.
Maybe this could be included in v9.5 or v9.5 update 1?

[MERGED] Feature request :Veeam FLR skip existing files

Veeam Logoby Songykhw » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:56 am

As Veeam provides Windows FLR by 2 options; Veeam Explorer and Windows Explorer.
When using Windows Explorer, you can select files and copy to any location but if you don't have permission to some files. It cannot copy that files.

When using Veeam Explorer, you can select any files to restore regardless permission.
And you can choose to overwrite all files or not. So I'd like to request for 'skip existing' or 'skip if newer'.

[MERGED] Feature request - copy only files which have change

Veeam Logoby Loomix » Mon Feb 26, 2018 12:38 pm

Hello everyone,

we are planning to move our Windows backup completely to Veeam (we use it atm only for VMs, no tape backup). The only thing we miss from our old backup software is a option to only copy the files which have changed (A "keep" option, but only in the copy dialogue).

This is really useful if you are migrating fileservers for example, and dont have enough time to copy all the files to the new location at first try and need a second shot after the next backup (=Base restore, then incremental restore).
