About granular restore

NetBackup enables you to perform a granular restore of files and folders on cloud virtual machines. You can create snapshots and restore, at the same time you can also locate and restore individual files and folders. You can also restore volumes from virtual machines.

This process is known as granular restore in which each single file in the snapshot is considered as a granule or more commonly referred to as single file restore. NetBackup makes an inventory of all the files within a snapshot using an indexing process. You can restore specific files from a snapshot only if that snapshot has been indexed by NetBackup.

The following table helps you understand the flow of enabling granular restore of volumes, files, and folders:
