Backup Exec's Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) lets you restore individual drives, files, and folders without having to restore the entire virtual machine. It also lets you restore individual items from VSS-aware applications that are installed on virtual machines.
GRT works only for the virtual machines that use a Windows operating system. GRT does not work for system recovery. You should review the requirements for a GRT-enabled backup before you configure it.
To use GRT, you select the individual files and folders that you want to restore from the list that appears when you expand the network bios or the computer name of the virtual machine. You cannot select individual folders and files from the virtual machines that appear when you expand VMware vCenter and ESX Servers.
