Granular Recovery

The granular recovery technology allows you to instantly recover specific files and objects from image-based backups. With this technology, you can easily recover corrupted or accidentally deleted files or objects without fully restoring a VM first. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication you can recover files for physical machines, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, AWS, and Nutanix virtual environments. You can also recover Microsoft Exchange emails, and Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft SQL Server objects directly from compressed and deduplicated backups. In addition, multiple recovery jobs and/or users may access the same recovery point even if it is currently in use by an existing recovery job/session.

Before you start the recovery process, verify that:

  • The target VM/instance/physical machine is powered on.

  • The target VM/instance/physical machine has enough space. The required minimum of free space is equal to the size of the recovered object + 1 GB.

  • The target VM/instance/physical machine is accessible over the network.
