Mounted Backups (File-level Restore)

Note: To see which hypervisor support this feature go to Storware Backup & Recovery Support Matrix.
To mount backup go to the Instances tab under Virtual Environment section on the left side menu, then click on the mount icon next to a chosen virtual machine
On the popup window, you can select which backup you want to mount and on which node. You can also change the mounting method, but we recommend leaving the default setting "Mount filesystem automatically".
The Mounted Backups tab show mounted Virtual Machine backups on the Storware Backup & Recovery node.
  • VIRTUAL MACHINE - mounted virtual machine name
  • MODE - Auto - Storware Backup & Recovery auto-detect filesystems and mount it on path "/mnt/vprotect/". In Manual mode, the user chose a mount point for selected filesystems.
  • NODE - Storware Backup & Recovery node responsible for mount job.
  • SNAPSHOT DATE - date of mounted backup of the VM.
  • FILE SYSTEMS - a number of mounted filesystems.
  • FILES - a number of mounted virtual disk images.
Next to every mounted backup you can see three buttons: To unmount backup click on
To remount backup click on
To go to the details page of mounted backup click on
On the details page, you can view some basic information or go deeper and browse files.
With a web browser, you can obtain even a single file from inside of your virtual machine backup.
