File Indexing Process
File indexing works directly with backup data, without connecting to the hypervisor or examining VM or instance group configuration.
A file indexing job includes the following stages:
- The MediaAgent assigned for the server plan discovers virtual machines or instances that have been backed up.
- The indexing job mounts each VM backup on a VSA proxy.
- The indexing job launches a Filescan operation and submits a list of volumes.
- The Filescan operation processes each volume to create a list of files and folders with the following attributes:
- Disks and volumes
- File and folder names
- File size
- File type
