Restore of Permissions on NTFS volume

Post by mdsullivan » Sep 13, 2016 7:54 pm

Is it possible to restore only the permissions on an NTFS folder without restoring the data using B&R 9.0?

Hi Mike,

No, you need to restore files&folders too. Here is the restore options in Veeam B&R > Data Recovery

Thanks!

I had a customer asking as their previous backup solution allowed this, I think it was Comvault. How do I make a feature request?

[MERGED] Functionnality - restoring only NTFS permissions

Post by Tip » May 05, 2017 11:58 am

Hello everyone.
I'm here because my company just move from Backup Exec to Veeam B&R 9.5 for backup all the infrastructure.
But my colleagues said that they were using the functionnaly of restoring only NTFS permissions in Backup Exec which is pretty efficent when you destroy the NTFS permissions integrety.
Our Veeam supplier confirmed that the functionnality is not integrated yet.

I would like to know if this functionnality will be intergrated in the next versions of Veeam B&R ?

Many thanks for your time.
Have a nice day.

+1, to add to the tally.
I've just been asked for an NTFS permissions-only restore.

As others have mentioned, our old backup software - TSM, could do it.

+1 to the tally. This is something that should already be available for file recovery options.

Are there any updates to this? Hitting the one year mark and haven't seen any news on NTFS permission restores.

Theoretically you should be able to do this with icacls. Mount the restored volume with Veeam File Explorer then use icacls to save the permissions from the mounted backup. You'll probably need to modify the paths but it shouldn't be too hard.

+1 this has been a huge time saver in the past with much older recovery software.
