  5. Better restore options

    The "Instant File Recovery from Cloud using Azure Backup" which is in the preview is a horrible way to restore files. Since Azure Backup retains the files and folder permissions it is not possible to restore files and folders that have been restricted unless you know to the precise path of the file. Most users do not know this path due to mapped drives and/or shares that do not reflect the true path on the files server.

    Since the mounted VHD files from Azure Backup is not a writable media it is not possible to reset the permissions, thus you…

  7. Need to simplify file recovery from backups.

    I could not follow "Recover files from Azure virtual machine backup". It was my 1st attempt.

    The above does not clearly state the need to complete the process on a different system with the same operating system as the vm. (I tried it on my Windows 10 PC and my own Ubuntu vm).

    Working with Diego Vega (Support Engineer) I was able to recover the file I needed. His help, by the way, was excellent and professional.

    The solution was to create an new vm, download a script, run the file recovery process, download the file I needed to my…

  8. False backup failure alert should be stopped for passive cluster node

    Currently we have backup scheduled for SQL which runs on a two node cluster. We are getting backup failure from the passive node.

    Ideally backup will happen only on active node. Hence there should be some intelligence built into backup solution so that it doesn't generate notification for passive nodes.

  12. MBOX to PST Converter tool

    If you want to Convert MBOX File to PST format, then your search might end here. I suggest you MBOX to PST Converter software. MBOX supports multiple email clients such as Apple Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird, etc. The user can use the new function-selective conversion that exports MBOX items and folders to a PST file. All MS Outlook versions 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010 etc. are also supported.

  13. Make Azure VM restore one click

    Here's an idea...how about you make restoring an existing VM one-click?
    I know..revolutionary idea.
    The amount of unnecessary complexity involved in restoring a VM is simply ridiculous.
    Im guessing 99.99% of users would just want to rollback an existing VM to a previous version.
    They dont want to create a new VM. They dont want to create new disks in a different storage account.
    They dont want to spend an hour in powershell trying to get blob copy to work puzzling over cryptic error messages.
    How about you simplify the restore process because the current process is simply dreadful.

  14. Allow Microsoft Azure Backup app to see full path when selecting Volumes

    We use Microsoft Azure Backup Server on-premise to backup VMs and other servers on-site.
    If we use Microsoft Azure Backup to try to restore data, for instance individual files from an Online backup, when try selecting the Volume/Data, all we can see is a tiny bit of the path.
    We see "C:\Program" instead of the full path that is similar to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure Backup\DPM\DPM\Volumes\Replica\File System\vol_GUID.
    So, we have to pick one entry and let it show the available dates and hope that it is the right one -- we can see the full path on the "Browse And Recover…

  16. Autodiscover VM to backup in other subscription

    The backup vault has this nice feature to autodiscover and deploy the backup agents to the VM on the same subscription (no need to get the credential and install the agent the VM like with the on-prem scenario)
    A good practice is to secure the backup vault in a dedicated subscription (to save backups not at the same place ad the VM) but in that case the autodiscovery" feature does not work anymore.
    It would be great to be able to autodeploy agents on VM from other subscriptions
