Guest restore workflow

Guest OS restore operations require multiple steps.

Guest OS restore operations include the following steps:

  1. Attach

    Attach a virtual disk to a guest VM or proxy VM and start a guest file restore session.

  2. Wait

    Wait for the attach operation to complete before you can browse and restore. When the attach operation finishes, a guest file restore session is automatically created and an email notification is sent.

  3. Select files or folders

    Browse the VMDK in the Guest File Restore session and select one or more files or folders to restore.

  4. Restore

    Restore the selected files or folders to a specified location.
