    Good morning,
    Running Hyper-V core server with 2 guest vm's, I have backed up the entire host server using BackupAssist which creates one large vhd for bare metal recovery. I would like to perform a test restore of a guest vm to the same host but different directory to ensure the backup works ok.

    Using wbadmin I've managed to get versions and items, in example below its the "Component = 4189DEEB-2550-4A67-BA62-0F4A74BA769E (\4189DEEB-2550-4A67-BA62-0F4A74BA769E)" I want to restore to a different location as this will be a backup copy of a live vm.

    c:\>wbadmin get versions
    wbadmin 1.0 - Backup command-line tool

    Backup time: 06/08/2010 11:03
    Backup target: 1394/USB Disk labeled E:
    Version identifier: 08/06/2010-10:03
    Can recover: Volume(s), File(s), Application(s), Bare Metal Recovery, System State
    Snapshot ID: {e0f34ec0-6ded-467d-a370-1af710e50e3a}

    c:\>wbadmin get items -version:08/06/2010-10:03

    Volume ID = {1407841d-8da6-11df-8be4-806e6f6e6963}
    Volume 'System Reserved', mounted at <not mounted> ('System Reserved', mounted at <not mounted> at the time the backup was created)
    Volume size = 100.00 MB
    Can recover = Full volume

    Volume ID = {1407841e-8da6-11df-8be4-806e6f6e6963}
    Volume '<Unlabeled Volume>', mounted at C:
    Volume size = 465.15 GB
    Can recover = Full volume

    Application = Registry
    Component = Registry (\Registry)

    Application = Microsoft Hyper-V VSS Writer
    Component = 4189DEEB-2550-4A67-BA62-0F4A74BA769E (\4189DEEB-2550-4A67-BA62-0F4A7

    Component = 6475C902-14DC-4B64-809C-0203D4B318D3 (\6475C902-14DC-4B64-809C-0203D

    Component = Initial Store (\Initial Store)

    c:\>wbadmin start recovery -version:08/06/2010-10:03..............

    Anyone any clues how I proceed to restore only the guest vm [Component = 6475C902-14DC-4B64-809C-0203D4B318D3 (\6475C902-14DC-4B64-809C-0203D
    4B318D3)] to a different directory for testing?

    Kind regards
