Long path - How to go directly to that folder

Thread needs solution

Is there anyway to go directly to a folder instead of clicking for many minutes?
I know R1Soft has this function where you can type the whole path and go into that folder.

We have customers with long folder paths like this:
c:/users/folder1/folder2/folder3/folder4/folder5/folder6/folder7/folder8/folder9/

And customer needs to check that folder for a file in many recovery points. Customer just gave up since he has to click for ages in each recovery point.

Does Veeam has a working solution for this?

Hello Morris M,

there is an existing feature request with the ID RM-1190 Search for a particular file/destination inside a selected recovery point. However, I'm afraid an estimated date for implication of this feature is yet unavailable.

Yes, I have asked for this feature many times. When we left R1Soft I our account manager that it was pretty critical.
Not one request we have made has been done over the years.

I would like to add a vote for RM-1190, this is something we'd like to have. 

It's possible with R1Soft, and it's really helpful when you need to get to a certain path to restore some files from there (instead of having to open/click every folder to get there - especially when there's a lot of files/folders somewhere).
