Unable to view Individual files for restore using NDMP option

Solution




Individual files and folder restores for NDMP is possible only if following conditions are met :

1. During the backup selection process, all selections were made at the folder level or higher ( Root ) .

2. File history should be  enabled for the backup job. File history is used to optimize recovery of selected subsets of data from the backup image and is enabled by default  ( Figure 1)

FIGURE 1
 

NOTE:  File history generation and processing increase the backup time , however in Scenarios If file history is made unavailable and user needs to restore data the entire backup image is required to be restored.
