The vRanger restore process

Previous Next


If you are restoring a VMware® VM, be aware of the following regarding the destination that you target for a restore:

Full restore

Previous Next

Using vRanger, recovery of an entire virtual machine (VM) — or resource pool, VMware vSphere® vApp(s)™, and so on — is a simple process. A full restore returns the protected objects to the state as of the point in time at which the backup was performed. If the savepoint is for a differential backup, the restore process first restores the matched full backup, and then merges the data from the selected differential archive. For incremental savepoints, the full backup is restored along with each incremental archive taken between the full and the selected savepoint.
For the procedures on restoring a physical savepoint, see Performing a full restore of a physical machine.

Restoring a file

Previous Next

One of the key problems with file-level restore (FLR) is finding the appropriate files. vRanger includes a cataloging feature that indexes backups of Windows® servers, and records the metadata to enable faster searching. For more information, see Performing an FLR using Catalog Search.
