You can now review your restore settings. Notice in the screenshot you will
see a list of all the VM's data that will be restored. This data contains the
VHD and the VM's settings. Once you are done reviewing click Recover :
Item-level recovery of a Hyper-V VM
The item-level recovery (ILR) feature in DPM 2010 allows granular recovery of files,
folders, and volumes. Recoveries can be done from a host-level backup of a Hyper-V
VM. This item-level data can be extracted to shares, or the volume on the DPM
server. ILR will work natively if the operating system of the DPM server is Windows
Server 2008 R2. If the operating system of the DPM server is Windows Server 2008,
the Hyper-V role must be installed in order for ILR to work. When DPM performs
an ILR, DPM actually mounts the VM's virtual hard disk and that is how it is able
to look inside of it. Windows Server 2008 is not able to mount VHDs but Windows
Server 2008 R2 is able to mount VHDs, this is why Windows Server 2008 requires the
Hyper-V role. Another point to note is if your DPM server is virtualized on Hyper-V
itself, it cannot perform ILR if it is Windows Server 2008. It can perform ILR as a
virtualized machine on Hyper-V if it is running Windows Server 2008 R2. Other
requirements for successful ILR are: The VM's VHD has to have at least one volume
and the guest OS in the VM cannot be on a dynamic disk.
Let's look at how to perform an item-level recovery:
