How to Exclude a drive from a VM restore.

Jan 16, 2022
hello in some scenario we need to restore large VMs

example a C: windows system with 1 TB and there is for example a Data drive of 2TB

is there a way in CLI to initate a restore without importing all Disk at once, so at least we can recover the server faster in some case.

From the Proxmox webui its everything or nothing.... And live restore is not always desired
