  • Hi Manikandan,
    What OS you are running on your file server?

    Depending on the OS version you could be maybe use Azure backup agent.
    You can find step-by-step guide for the setup here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-configure-vault

    And list of supported OS versions and other guestions here

  • Hi Tomi,

    Thanks for the response.

    We are running File Server on Windows OS 2008 R2 & Windows 2012 R2 . i understood that's compatible with Azure Backup.

    Can you please tell whether file level restore is possible instead of snapshot restore. 

    Regards,
