Hyper-V Granular Restore

This section explains how to restore files inside Hyper-V guests using a System Protection, File Protection or File Archiving backup. Hyper-V Granular Restore allows you to restore individual files from a guest using a Hyper-V backup of one or more guests.

This feature requires the Hyper-V Advanced add-on.

To perform a Hyper-V Granular Restore, follow the steps below:

  1. Select the File/Apps tab
  2. The Files\Apps tab has a Home page and a Tools page. The Home page is the default page and the starting point for performing a restore. The Tools page should only be used by experienced users or with the assistance of BackupAssist Technical Support.

  3. Select Files inside Hyper-V Guests
  4. This step starts the guided restore process and will take you to the Hyper-V Granular restore screen, which will display the guests backed up by this installation of BackupAssist.

  5. Select the guest
  6. Select the guest that you want to perform the restore for. The next step is to select the backup, but if you are not sure what backup contains the files you want to restore, the Search option will help you locate them.

  7. Select the backup
  8. When you select the guest, the screen will reload and display all available backups for that guest. Select the backup that you want to restore from.

  9. Select the data
  10. When you select the backup, the Integrated Restore Console will open. Use the console to select the guest files that you want to restore.

  11. Select the destination
  12. Use the Integrated Restore Console to select the location that you want to restore the data to. You can also use this step to select other restore options like the data overwrite rules.

  13. Start the restore
  14. When you select the Restore button, the restore process will begin. The Integrated Restore Console will display information about the restore job and provide status updates as the job runs.

  15. Select Done
  16. Once the restore has finished, selecting Done will return you to the main UI.

Your Hyper-V Granular restore has now been completed.
