Hello Is it possible to restore all files from a virtual machine? I can restore the machine two different ESXi Server, or restore files they exist into a backup but what I doesn’t know is it possible is to restore the original vmdk, vmx and the other files of the virtual machine to a share. Is this not possible or how can I do this, Thanks Bruno

Hello Bruno,

welcome to Acronis forums!

It is possible to restore either the entire VM or files from that VM, the special virtual machine files restore is not supported.

Hello Bruno,

I'm afraid, recovery of a VM as set of files is not available in the current version of Acronis Cyber Backup. It is only possible to convert a disk-level backup to a virtual machine and save it as a set of files.
