With a Hyper-V Rapid Recovery backup, you have the ability to restore individual files and folders from the backup using the "Object-Level" restore option. When restoring files and folders using the object-level capabilities, the restore works the same way as a File and Folder restore, only the data is restored from a Hyper-V Rapid Recovery backup. Object-level restores are intended for short-term retrieval and should not be counted on to restore older files and folder; for this, a File and Folder backup set would be appropriate. This guide will show you how to perform an object-level restore.
Log into the management portal and navigate to the computer account you want to restore from.
Go to the Restore tab and click on the button named Start a Restore.
Choose Virtual Machines as the data type and select Hyper-V - Object-level Restore from the right side. Click Next to continue.
On the next page, choose which virtual machine you will restore from. Drill down through to the revision date and the location of the folders or files you want to restore. Put a check mark in the box next to those items.
When you have selected all the items you want to restore, hit Next.
Choose where you want to restore the files to. You can browse to a path or enter the UNC path of the destination you choose. Below the destination path, select whether or not you want to restore the items' NTFS permissions, attributes, and last modified dates.
Click Next when you are ready to proceed.
- The last page is a summary of the restore job you set up. Hit Restore to begin the restore.
