Guest file restore session is blank


You created a guest file restore session and while that session was active, the guest operating system was rebooted. When this occurs, VMDKs in the guest OS might remain offline. Therefore, when you try to browse the guest file restore session, the list is blank.

Corrective action

Manually put the VMDKs back online in the guest OS. When the VMDKs are online, the guest file restore session will display the correct contents.
