I've had this same issue and I find the Veeam File Explorer very limiting with the lack of advanced options. All our main file serves are still backed up by Commvault because of this - its annoying. For example we often use the `replace permissions only` restore option when people muck up folder permissions
We shouldn't have to use any of these workarounds that involve robocopy etc. IMO, this is basic stuff that should be part of the restore process.
Also the speed of restores is abysmal for restores 50,000+ files, took us hours to recover from a ransomware hit last month, Commvault could restore a million files in the same timeframe.
(hey, don't get me wrong, I dislike Commvault and I'd like to get rid, but until these limitations of Veeam are dealt with, then we are stuck with using 2 systems)
