Opening a VeeamZIP *.vbk file locally (error) ...

this time I want to discuss a strange phenomena I already had several times. If I open VBR 9.5 and select 'FILES' on the left pane, I can browse to local files on our VBR Server and select a *.vbk backup made with VeeamZIP.

Then I get the following error ...

'Cannot open file from the remote host. Copy it locally or to a shared Folder first.'

Well, I browsed our VBR Server locally by selecting the VBR Server itself and opening drive D: and the subdirectories, where the *.vbk file is located. I selected the *.vbk file, right clicked on it and selected Open.

Double clicking the *.vbk file from outside VBR works and open the *.vbk VeeamZIP backup without a Problem.

Is that a known bug?

Hi Didi7,

Unfortunately, we know nothing about this behavior (except it does not look like expected). If possible, please submit a case to our support team and share the case Id in this thread. Thanks in advance.
