So you want to do a file level restore from a VM? Well great, its a nice feature and I think you should. Now what software are you going to use to do it with?

Both vRanger and Veeam have the ability, here is the difference. with vRanger it has to completely uncompress the entire VM before it can do this, depending on the size of your VM you can guess that this isn’t a quick process. Veeam doesn’t require you to do this and its pretty instantaneous.

So here is your choice for your restore: a few minutes with Veeam or a few hours with vRanger. Not a hard choice for me.
