Hey all.  Using Veeam Backup and Replication 11 we backed up some files using a files to tape job as a once off outside of our normal backup routine.

When I look at the properties of the tape I can see the individual files listed.

However when attempting to restore an individual file I get the following:

Can I not select individual files to restore?  Do I have to restore the entire tape or am I doing something wrong?

thanks

It seems like you've chosen to restore the complete tape. In that dialog, try to remove the tape and add individual files/folder via the add button. Or go to the files tab, browse the tape node and select the files to restore there.

Bah!  I’m being an idiot.  I right clicked the tape and clicked Restore Contents and that’s what defaulted.  Thanks regnor.
