    Nice video! We are just trying out the new features of Azure backup and have successfully backed up a VM using this new method of backup. While the backup procedure looks promising, we are having some issues with the restore options: In your video you outline a few different scenarios, for example where you'd accidentally deleted something from your Mongo db and you were able to restore the previous day's db. However, in the restore options in Azure, you aren't actually given the option to restore single files or browse the contents of a backup. Instead you are only given the option to restore the entire VM, which is a rather heavy task if you only would like to access a backed up file or folder.
