Best way would be to simply unzip/unpack the archive and import it with the hyper v manager

HVBackup does nothing special - when you backup the vm, it does a simple export (as you can do with the manager by yourself), steams that into a zip file and that's it.

This is not exact. The backup is done via VSS, which involves also the VSS providers on the guest making it app consistent. The Hyper-V export APIs are not used here.

Restore has not yet implemented in the app, but it can be easily achieved by doing a regular import as suggested here:

Yeah, I know :)

My english skills aren't the best and it sounded a bit wrong. Should've wrote "it does something like a simple export".

Problem is that import does not work. Hyper-V reports that IMPORT could not be done if the export was made import on this Hyper-V =\

PS. I'm use Hyper-V 2008 R2
