Mongodb Sharded Cluster - Backup and Restore at Shard Level

I would like to understand - can we do backup and restore of an inidividual shard ?
If yes then how does the behaviour is if data is being split from one shard to another to the point where restore was performed.

i believe normally a lock is placed to avoid any changes to the underlying data set (at least we do this for our backup). E.g. writes or auto balancing.

Otherwise the consistent will not be even consistent for this specific shard.

Thanks for reply.
Can we do shard level backup and restore, is that a usecase?

Hi Team, does Ops manager support Restore of individual Shard.

Yes, we do backup all our shards and then restore to a different cluster regularly. shards are independent, it’s up to you which shards to backup and restore.
