Configuring Agentless File Recovery for Amazon

You can restore files and folders directly to the original instance or a different instance, from streaming or IntelliSnap backups of Windows or Linux instances. The destination instance must be running.

This feature is supported only from the Command Center.

You can use a VSA proxy running Windows or Linux.
