Veeam Agent – Volume Restore of Windows Server 2016

When we perform a volume-level restore, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows restores the entire content of the volume. We can’t use File restore wizard to recover specific volume. It retrieves from the backup data blocks about a specific volume and copies them to the necessary location.

Backup Location
Restore Point
Disk Mapping
Summary
Progress of the Volume Restore
