Restoring Clients using Virtualize Me Restore

Updated

You can use the Ransomware Recovery application to restore Windows file system clients that suffered a ransomware attack.

You can restore multiple clients in a single restore operation. You can also verify that the data is valid for recovering. When you perform the restore operation, you specify whether to run the Virtualize Me restore job from valid copies, or run a data verification job before you run the Virtualize Me restore job.
