I am running Veeam 7.0 to backup my VMs. I need to restore some files. when I go to the restore process the options for the restore points are full and rollback.I cannot use the full because the files that are corrupt are included in the full backup. What is the difference between a rollback and a full?

Thanks for the info. I was not looking for a "How To". I was asking the difference between a rollback and a full and can I use a rollback instead of a full.

You've mentioned that you need to restore some files. I gave you the "how to" for this.
The difference between Full and Rollback is that only first backup is full and all the rest are created as incremental. They are called as Roll-back points. That's why it is recommended that you take from time to time a full backup so that in rare case where one of these Rollback increments gets bad you have a full image.
Now in short - Full and Rollback are almost the same, the only thing is that Rollback restores to specific point like Vmware shnapshot. And full is a full backup restore. Rollback cannot work without Full but Full can work without Rollback.

Thank you for the info. My problem is that the full has corrupted files so I cannot use it. Does that mean that I cannot use  the rollback points either?

If the files were already corrupted in full then they are also corrupted in rollbacks. In any case you can try tomuse the file level recovery and see if you get the files in good condition.
As far as I know you can open the snapshots (rollbacks) with file recovery as well.
