How Granular Recovery Technology works with the Agent for Microsoft Hyper-V

Backup Exec Granular Recovery Technology (GRT) lets you restore individual 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 is not intended to be used for system recovery. However, you can perform a complete system recovery by selecting the entire virtual machine as a restore selection in a restore job.

See How Backup Exec protects Microsoft Exchange, SQL, and Active Directory data on virtual machines.

You should review the requirements for a GRT-enabled backup before you configure it.

See About requirements for jobs that use Granular Recovery Technology.

See Requirements for protecting Microsoft Exchange, SQL, and Active Directory data on virtual machines.

To use GRT, you must select the individual files and folders that you want to restore from the list that appears when you expand the Netbios name or the computer name of the virtual machine. You cannot select individual folders and files from the virtual machines that appear when you expand the Virtual Machines node.

See How to restore individual items by using Granular Recovery Technology.
