Restoring files and folders from cloud virtual machines

You can restore a single file or folder from a cloud virtual machine.

Note:

For Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon AWS NetBackup supports snapshot and recovery of cloud assets that are encrypted using the keys that the manager provides.

To restore a file or folder

  1. On the left, click Cloud.
  2. Click on the Virtual machines tab.
  3. Select the virtual machine where the application is hosted. On the top right, click Connect.
  4. After the VM is connected, on the top right, click Add protection.
  5. Select a protection plan that is created for granular recovery of files and folders and click Next.
  6. Click Protect.
  7. To execute the protection plan, click Backup now.
  8. After a snapshot and the two indexing job or two backup from snapshot job for the assets are complete, click the Recovery points tab.
  9. On the top right for the preferred recovery point, select Restore files and folders.

    You can also apply date filters to search for across recovery points. In case of replication, you click Recover and then select Restore files and folders.

  10. In the Add file step, click Add.
  11. In the Add files and folders dialog box, select the files you want to restore and click Add.

    You can click the folders or drives on the left to expand and view the files in a particular folder. You can search files based on their names or extensions.

  12. Click Next.
  13. From the Target VM list in the Recovery target step, select a VM.

    A list with all connected VMs having same operating systems as original target host is displayed. If you do not select a VM, the files are restored to the original VM.

  14. In the Files restore options, select one of the following options:
    • Restore everything to original directory

    • Restore everything to a different directory

      You must then provide a directory location. You can also enter a UNC path to the location.

  15. Click Next.
  16. In the Recovery options step, select the preferred option:
    • Append string to file names

      In the String field, enter the string that you want use to append. The string is appended before the last extension of a file.

    • Overwrite existing files

      You must have appropriate permissions.

    • (If you selected the Restore everything to a different directory option) Create new files for hard links

  17. Click Next.
  18. In the Review step, view the selected options and click Start Recovery.

The restore job for the selected files is triggered. You can view the job details on the Activity monitor. After the job is successful, you can see summary of restored files in the job details.
