It is possible to enable "Self-healing" and "Verification" for the repository on some schedule.

"Self-healing" and "Verification" guarantee that all backup data in the repository is in the same consistent state as during backup - NAKIVO compares checksums of blocks that were counted during the backup with actual repository data. In this case File level recovery should work fine.

The only possible issue in this case - bootability of VM in case there are some issues with boot sector, for example. It could be also in case OS updates were installed during the backup. In this case we would recommend to use automated Screenshot verification (or Boot verification) feature or manually run Flash boot to check that VM if booted fine.
