I understood that is not possible:
It seems that File Level Restore is actually a Windows-only feature, not supporting even ext4 nor any disk with more than one partition.
Hi, you can try VMcom Backup Appliance (https://vmcom.com) instead of VDP for linux file-level restores.
It supports both xfs and ext4 and also multiple partitions on a single vdisk. At this point, it does not support LVM though. (LVM support will be added in near future.)
External proxies are required for the Linux logical volume manager (LVM) and EXT4 file level restore. Deployment of external proxies is performed using the vSphere Data Protection configure user interface (UI).
