New VMware Data Recovery Appliance (vDR)

MikeLaverick MikeLaverick Profile: MikeLaverick

VMware has recently re-issued their VDR appliance – that runs as VM to back up VMs. It’s pretty cute, although limited to 100 VMs maximum.

That URL takes you screen dumps that show the new graphically based “File Level Restore” utility. Don’t get your hopes up too much. It still just mounts a restore point like the old CLI based FLR. It’s not like a backup agent that allows you to select files to restore and their destination (original or new). It’s basically a very good disk mounting wizard – you will still find yourself copying files from the mounting point to your virtual disk.
