Performing a Live Browse on Snapshot

Live browse lets you search and restore data even if the granular metadata is not collected during snap backups. Live browse operations are performed using the snapshots.


  1. From the CommCell Console, expand Client Computers > client > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the appropriate subclient, and then click Browse and Restore.

    The Browse and Restore Options dialog box appears.

  3. In the Advanced Options tab, select the appropriate proxy client to mount the snapshot from the Use Proxy list.

    Note: Make sure that the indexing MediaAgent, proxy MediaAgent selected for browse, and proxy MediaAgent selected for restore are same.

    If the proxy MediaAgent selected for browse and the indexing MediaAgent are not same, select the proxy MediaAgent that you selected for browse from the Use Proxy list in the Advanced Restore Options (Data Path) tab.

  4. Click View Content.
  5. Select the data that you want to restore, and click Recover All Selected.
  6. Click OK.
