How can I restore a single VHDX/VMDK file?

Last Updated: Aug 15, 2017 03:46PM CEST
From 7.5.6 and onwards the Virtual Disk Restore functionality was introduced allowing you to restore single VHDX or VMDK file from your backup set. Thereby this could save you a lot of time on your restore operations especially if you just need a single small virtual disk.

In order to restore a single disk, you can do so by navigating to the Granular Restore menu and then choose the Virtual Disk Restore option.

Then simply go through the process - as you would for a normal restore operation, however you will be presented with a choice to choose which VHDX/VMDK you wish to restore from your VM.

Note: Only backups taken with 7.5.6 and onwards can use the Virtual Disk Restore functionality.
