Noted.

Would you describe a couple of the most horrific/interesting situations that the feature helped you with?

Thanks!

I would think instant recovery with the proper robocopy switches ( https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comme ... ions_only/ ) would do just fine. Seems like such a niche request, really. How can you be sure that it's only the ACLs that were affected by whatever you're trying to revert?

+1. I haven't been in this situation yet, but after reading through these posts, I'm a little uneasy :)

Has restore of NTFS permissions only been implemented in B&R 9.5 Update 4?

Hopefully it will be in future release! It would be VERY helpful when someone screws up the share\security permissions on a large folder structure and you want to revert the changes.

Indeed. That very thing happened here a couple of years ago. A colleague, who probably wants to remain anonymous, made a mistake... Fortunately we backed that file server with IBM TSM back then, so it was possible for us to restore only the NTFS permissions. ;-)

We've just had similar issue and came here to look to see if possible with Veeam.
What we did instead was to run through the process to restore file so that it mounted the restore point but don't actually restore anything, just leave the Veeam Explorer window open . You can then access the mount point files via C:\VeeamFLR\ without actually running a restore.
Then from the file server I ran a robocopy job using the COPY:S /SECFIX switches and selecting the desired folder under VeeamFLR to the matching folder on the file server to restore just the security and not restore the files.
It can be a slow process if you have lots of files but quicker than anything else I could think of.

It also reminded me to do something I was meant to do ages ago and that was to take regular backups of security permissions so I can easily restore when needed!

Yes, I can confirm robocopy /SECFIX is the common workaround to restore permissions only. Thanks for sharing!
