Granular recovery for Hyper-V

Idea ID 1638062

Re: Granular recovery for Hyper-V

Brief description:  Single file recovery of a Hyper-V VM backed up with DP

We support this capability with VMware today, and customers who have Hyper-V would like to restore a single file in a VM instead of the entire VM.

How:  Ensure the GRE capability is simple and easy to use.  Would prefer if it is part of the DP UI itself instead of System Center.

we're working in this feature for later this year. In the meantime you can use a workaround:
1. Restore the Hyper-V VM disk to a volume location by clicking "Restore to target storage path" in the restore context
2. Right-click the restored VHD(x) and select "mount"
3. Browse for files and restore by cut & paste

This has the nice side-effect that you can use any windows-ntfs based system for this activity. You're not bound to Hyper-V.
