    HariKrishnaR-1205 To download the backup of an Azure Blob storage instance done with Backup Vault, you can initiate a restore operation through the Backup center. Here are the steps to follow:

    In Backup center, go to Restore on the top bar.

    On the Initiate Restore tab, choose Azure Blobs (Azure Storage) as the Datasource type and select the Backup Instance you want to restore. The backup instance is the storage account that contains the blobs you want to restore.

    On the Select recovery point tab, select the type of backup you want to restore. For vaulted backup, choose a recovery point from which you want to perform the restore.

    On the Restore parameters tab, select the options based on the type of backups you've chosen to perform restore.

    After you've selected the restore parameters, click on the Review + restore button to review the restore settings.

    Once you've reviewed the restore settings, click on the Restore button to initiate the restore operation.

    1. Once the restore operation is complete, you can download the restored blobs from the target storage account to which the backup data was restored.

    To restore the blobs using PowerShell, you can refer to this document. And to download the restored blobs, you can refer to this document. Kindly check the provided documents and revert if you have further questions.

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    You can use Azure PowerShell.

    Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupItem -VaultName "YourBackupVaultName" -ContainerName "YourContainerName" Start-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryJob -VaultName "YourBackupVaultName" -ContainerName "YourContainerName" -ItemName "YourBackupItemName" -RecoveryPoint (Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint -VaultName "YourBackupVaultName" -ContainerName "YourContainerName" -ItemName "YourBackupItemName")
