Backup and Recovery possibilities in depth: Volume recovery

In our previous post we discussed file-level recoveries. Besides recovering individual files, you also have the ability to recover entire volumes. Note that this only works when you have chosen the Entire PC or the Volume Level Backup methods. When you perform volume-level recovery, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE restores the entire content of the volume.

Again you have three possibilities (actually four but I’ll come back to that later…) to get to your volume level recoveries. Typing in Veeam in the start menu and selecting Volume Restore, right-click on the tray icon and selectRestore – Entire Volumes or directly in the UI select a recovery point and press the restore volumes button.

A volume can be restored to its original location or to a new location. If you restore the volume to its original location, Veeam Endpoint Backup overwrites the original volume. If you restore the volume to a new location, volume can be manually allocated either on disk’s empty space or by replacing the existing volumes. In second case Veeam Endpoint Backup overwrites data in the target location with data retrieved from the backup. However, there are few limitations for volume-level recovery:

  • You cannot restore the system volume to its original location.
  • You cannot restore a volume to the volume on which the swap file is currently hosted.
  • You cannot restore a volume to the volume where the backup file used for restore is located.
