that should be

proxmox-backup-client restore <type>/<group>/<snapshot-id> <archive-name> <target-path> 

for example:

proxmox-backup-client restore vm/100/2022-01-01T01:01:01Z drive-scsi0.img /target/scsi0.raw 
--repository ...

see 'man proxmox-backup-client' for more details

hope this helps

kind regards
