You can restore VM files (XML, VMCX, VMRS, VMGS, VHD, VHDX) if they become corrupted. This option is an excellent alternative to restoring the entire VM. You can only restore a single VM file.

You can restore VM files (XML, VMCX, VMRS, VMGS, VHD, VHDX) if they become corrupted. This option is an excellent alternative to restoring the entire VM. You can only restore a single VM file.

When you perform a VM file restore, the VM file is restored directly from regular image-level backups without de-staging VM images from backups first. VM files can be converted to either the original or a new location.

Note:

If you recover a VMCX file and import it to Microsoft Hyper-V, the VM will be registered under the Veeam Recovery Checkpoint-(<GUID>) name. After import, you can rename the VM if required.
