You are the administrator of the Contoso financial group. You have an Azure virtual machine called ?Finance? which has Azure backup enabled and running. The virtual machine has crashed the day before the payroll run and needs to be resorted ASAP. Which recovery method will be the fastest even if it results in temporarily additional costs?
Restore VM is correct, as this will enable you to restore the data to a new VM to be up and running within minutes. File recovery will not suffice as all the date needs to be restored to a production environment, just selected files. Restore VHD is more of an manual process and not ideal, still needs a VM to be linked to. Site recovery failover will not suffice as the replicated VM might have some issues as well, the safest bet is to restore the VM.
