Backup Exec 2014 - VMWare File level restore - Job Failing

I'm trying to restore a file off a share server in my VMWare build and when i run the restore, it fails out everytime with the following Errors:

 

V-79-57344-33935 - The path on the Backup Exec server for staging temporary restore data when restor...
Configuration and Settings
Backup Exec Settings
Granular Recovery Technology, and enter a restore path that has more disk space.

V-79-57344-65072 - Connection to the restore target has been lost.  Operation canceled.
 

Restore
V-79-57344-38721 - Failed to mount one or more virtual disk images:

The odd part is theres plenty of space and i dont understand how it "looses connection" to target nor fail to mount

 

Any help would greatly be appericated.

I guess you are restoring

I guess you are restoring from a tape which requires the backup set to be staged to disk before any restore can be done.  By default, the backup set is staged to C:\temp.  To change it, Click on the BE button ---> Configuration and Settings ---> Backup Exec Settings (second setting in the screenshot below) and stage to some other disk with more space.

The staging disk space is at least as large as the VM.

 

Alternatively, you can duplicate the backup set from tape to disk and then do your restore from the disk backup set.
