What is meant by "several volumes for a Virtual Disk"? You mean VMware Datastores? Or do you mean partitions inside a virtual disk? Please add an example ...

Hello @Kozloviv,

Do you mean parallel restore of VEAgent objects of a single VM? Then this idea already exist and it currently worked on. If this is the case, please vote for this, too.

Hello @Sebastian.Koehler and @UliW_MF, thank you for the question. This idea is about system volumes of a virtual machine(c:\, d:\ and so on)

Hi @Kozloviv ,

given the fact that C:\ or D:\ are on dedicated VDISKs you can do that today. If they are on the same VDISK then VMware vStorage cannot see the partition layout and you can't select for either backup or restore. That's not a DP limitation.
