This article includes the following sections:

  • Overview
  • Restoring VMware QuickSpin at the Object Level


At the Object-level, you can browse all the files of the VMs that you backed up and select individual files from those VMs to restore. This feature allows you to recover individual files and folders from a local backup directly through the management portal. You are essentially restoring files and folders out of the recovery VM instead of powering up the recovery VM.
