Title: RESTORING A FILE SYSTEM OBJECT
Abstract:
Techniques associated with restoring a file system object are described in various implementations. In one example, a method may include receiving a request to restore a file system object, the file system object being stored in backup data produced from a raw image backup of a file system. The method may also include determining whether the backup data is accessible from an on-premise storage system, and retrieving blocks of data associated with the file system object from the backup data without restoring the file system. The data blocks may be retrieved from the on-premise storage system if the backup data is accessible from the on-premise storage system, or from the off-premise storage system if the backup data is not accessible from the on-premise storage system. The method may also include causing the file system object to be restored.
