Restore allows for copying replicated VMs in Azure Virtual Machines (Classic) back to VMware. The hardware specifications of restored VMs are almost identical to their original VMs from vSphere.
Currently, all supported OSes in deploy can be restored from Azure Storage (Classic) into vSphere.
Copyback allows for copying VMs deployed in Azure Virtual Machines (Classic) back to VMware. The hardware specifications of copybacked VMs are created based on deployed VMs in Azure. They will not look the same as their original VMs from vSphere.
Currently, all supported OSes in deploy can be copied back from Azure Virtual Machines (Classic) into vSphere.
