Hello everybody,

I have the following problem:
If I try to perform a restore to a share with the option "Copy To…", then I reach a speed of 25 mb / sec
If I try to perform a restore with the option "Restore -> Overwrite", then I reach a speed of 250 kb / sec

The restore I perform always on the same server
My user has Domain Admin rights

Veeam 9.0 with the last update

Does somebody has any idea?

Thanks and Greetings

This most likely comes down to the fact that if using the Copy To option, the backup is mounted to the remote console, not the backup server or repository, like in case of restore to original location.

Hi,

There actually is a relative easy solution to speed up restore (in cases where it really takes hours to start cause of the thousands of files you want to copy or restore). I'll try to take it step by step (an we're still on 8, so it might be a bit different)

1. Setup SFTP access to your Multi-OS FLR (https://www.veeam.com/kb2062)
2. Get IP of FLR (also on https://www.veeam.com/kb2062)
3. Download a statically compiled rsync (https://www.symantec.com/connect/downlo ... -rsync-307)
4. SCP it over to your FLR
5. Use rsync :)

It would be easier if Veeam would include rsync in the Busybox installation by default though.

We also had some issues with restore speed using File Level Restore.
As a workaround, I did the following:

    1. Start Instant VM Recovery of the VM, but do not power on.
    2. Edit setting of the VM where you want to restore the files,
    add the disk of the restored VM (in Veeam NFS Datastore)
    3. Now the backupdata is available in the VM, and you can restore with robocopy.

The big advantage is that restore is done locally, so there is no network traffic.
Also, if Veeam server is in another VLAN than the VM where you want to restore to, traffic doesn't need to be routed...

I wonder if it isn't possible for Veeam to implement this in the Veeam GUI as an extra option when using File level restore...
