The video says the 'Redirect to Recovery Storage Group' option is only available to restore from snapshot backup (+- 07:15 into the video).

Can you confirm that original backup was done with snapshot selected?

If the default RSG name was accepted in step 5, the recovery storage group name is: Microsoft Information Store:\Recovery Storage Group.
