How to Restore a Hyper-V machine with the Hyper-V Agent installed

Created: 28 Jan 2013 • Updated: 05 Feb 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am trying to get to a particular folder located on the C: drive of the Hyper-V machine.  We have the Microsoft Hyper-V Agent installed on the Hyper-V server where the virtual machines are located.

How can I get to that level of folder restoring??

If this is version BE2010 and if you have done GRT backup of virtual machine on hyper V host then yes you can do a file folder restore from a drive on virtual machine.

You will see machine with FQDN name in restore selection were you can view the GRT for virtual machine

If this is BE2012 you will see the virtual machine listed in backup restore page ,and to restore it double click on that server and then click on restore to perform individual restore.

For doing GRT restore ensure you have installed remote agent on virtual machine

Hope that helps

Thanks to you both for the comments. Well lesson learned. On one of my Hyper-V servers, the "Use Backup Exec Grandular Recovery...." option was NOT checked. I checked my other Hyper-V's and they have that option checked,.

And I was then able to see how the restore works from the others.

Again, thanks so much.
