Restore only files that have changed? Backupexec 2010

Created: 26 Dec 2012 • Updated: 26 Dec 2012 | 3 comments

Hey all, here is the situation..Our SAN died and we had to restore backup copies of our VMs taken by VEEAM. Unfortuneately, these copies are three weeks old. However, we do have tape backups. We are spinning up the old VMs but I am wondering if it is possible to setup the backupexec restore job to only restore files that are missing or have changed in the last three weeks? Thanks!

What are these tape backups that you are talking about?  If these are backups of the backups are taken by VEEAM then you can only restore the VM's using VEEAM and not BE.  BE is only of use to restore your VEEAM backups to disk.  It cannot do anything beyond that.

If these tape backups are backups taken by BE, then you can just do a restore over existing files.
