The Veeam explorer for Exchange start and it give an error "The following databases are not attached:" it list all the Exchange databases.
Switching to persistent snapshot is expected in case of VSS freeze timeout
. However automatic database mount in VEX is not possible for such backups (databases were not properly frozen). You can fire up full VM restore and open databases manually from VEX.

There's a registry key for that, however, this folder's contents does not take any disk space, anyway, as it is used just to mount the backup images under it.
