Hello admins,

Great work for this tools, so helpful ^^
After deploying the xsibackup-154218930641213216242 free version on a free esxi, I did a backup on a nfs share with the following command and options :

/vmfs/volumes/Datastore1/xsi-dir/xsibackup --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/backup --backup-type=running --date-dir=yes

It seems working fine. The clone is on the move ^^
But because I didn't understand the meaning or some differencies (sorry for that), I was asking now it's backed up, how can I restore a vm if the one in production crashed ?
I saw, the restore feature is only available in pro version. But is there a way manual or other to do it in the free version ?
I saw some answers on the forum : "You can directly use any backup generated with Vmkfstools, OneDiff or Rsync though" but I don't understand that.
Can I have some details ?
Thanks for your help.
