Retrospect Virtual allows you to instantly restore from a backup of your virtual machine with Run Direct, getting you back up to business in minutes.

Vm granular restore

Granular File-Level Restore - Paid Add-on

Retrospect Virtual now supports file-level granular restore for virtual machines. In the past, IT administrators needed to restore an entire virtual machine to extract a single file from it. With RunDirect, this VM restore was fast, but now with Granular Restore, administrators can skip the VM restore altogether.
