Remember, that this is not the productional way to restore the virtual machine. It is just the Disaster Recovery feature. If you need to restore the virtual machine to VMware after the accident, run the Instant Restore and the Whole VM recovery tasks at the same time. Thanks to it, you will be able to use the virtual machine in a few minutes using the Instant Restore, and when the Whole VM recovery task will be done, you can stop the Instant Restore process and use the productionally restored virtual machine.

iSCSI restore

Granular recovery feature, which allows users to restore individual files and folders from VMware Virtual Machine backup. It makes the restoration process much easier and quicker in many unexpected situations. Using the iSCSI protocol Xopero ONE Agent gets access to the files, which are located on the storage and you are able to restore the files, which you really need, without restoring the unneeded files.
