  • Find file across multiple backups
    Posted: 12-22-2014, 10:05 AM

    I am trying to find a way to list a file across multple backups (of a VM) so that I can then select which one to recover.

    We often get requests to restore a file that has been corrupted (typically psts). Often the file size changes dramatically upon corruption but it is difficult to determine on which date that happened. We have to open the backup history for the relevant subclient then drill down through every snap backup until we find what looks like an uncorrupted version.

    I've tried using the Find option but all it ever returns is the most recent backup of the file, even when you select a time range.

    In summary, I want to specify a filename, and the server it was backup up from, then have CommVault return all known backups of that file.

    Yes we support this funtionality, we show all versions of the files.

    Are your backups completed with Granular Recovery option enabled? This feature works when you have this option enabled for backup jobs. You can enable this from Backup options -> Adbanced -> Enable Granular Recovery option

    Let us know if you still have issues with this, we can help.
