Single file restore from WS 2019 with dynamic disk


Mar 4, 2022

I haven't found an answer when I looked for it, so hoping anyone could send me the right direction.
We have a CEPH cluster with 3 Proxmox nodes running version 6.4-4 with zfs storage.
On all VMs except one, I can restore single files.
The one VM in question is a Windows Server 2019 with a dynamic disk (no dynamic disks on other VMs). While trying to open the backup I get an error message:
- proxmox-file-restore failed: Error: mounting 'drive-scsi1.img.fidx/part/1' failed: all mounts failed or no supported file system (500)

Is there any way around this (upgrade to newer Proxmox version, restoring to another VM so I don't lose the current files, ..)?

Thank you very much for any hints/recommendations,
