restore guest os file in reverse incremental backup

Dear all
Hi

in your document about Restoring VM Guest OS Files said : "You cannot restore files from a backup created in the reverse incremental mode if the backup job is being performed. If the backup is created in the incremental backup mode and the backup job is being performed, you can restore files from any available restore point"

is that means if we get reverse incremental backup can not used that for restore guest file ?

Nope, it means that if a reversed incremental job is currently running, you cannot initiate File Level Restore. In order to that you need to either wait till the job is finished or stop the job. Thanks.

In those modes you should be able to initiate file level restore from any restore point beside the latest one (which is still being created). Thanks.
