Restoring VMs, VMDKs, files, and folders from backups

You can restore VMs and VMDKs from primary or secondary backups. VMs are always restored to the original host and datastore; VMDKs can be restored to either the original or an alternate datastore. You cannot use SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere to restore a datastore, only the individual VMs in the datastore. You can also restore individual files and folders in a guest file restore session, which attaches a backup copy of a virtual disk and then restores the selected files or folders.
