File-level restore versioning

Post by Mig29777 » Oct 15, 2018 3:12 pm


I have a VM with Centos7 OS (file server beneath), and formatting with NEXT3 file-system which include file versioning, and I have multiplied version on the same file (for example 4 version of one excel file).
I want to backup that file with Veeam, but I suppose when I backup that file, during restore procedure Veeam cannot recognize the 3 older version of the same file.
The question is, is it possible to organize my Linux, and setup up Veeam to be aware of multiplied version of that file.

Thanks in advance, :D

Hi Milos,

I don't believe there is a way to expose file versions in the FLR wizard, but if try to use an Instance VM Recovery option that would basically publish the entire VM image from the backup file, then after connecting to this VM you should be able to get a native interface to work with files.

Hope this helps!

Or run it in a Veeam VirtualLab with UniversalRestore wizard.
