Backing up Windows Server PDF Print E-mail

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use Windows Server Backup to protect your operating system, system state, volumes, files, and application data. Backups can be saved to single or multiple disks, single or multiple volumes, DVDs, removable media, or remote shared folders. They can be scheduled to run automatically or manually. Windows Server Backup creates complete backups that allow you to perform recoveries of your computer without needing to reference another backup. However, these backups are optimized to behave like incremental backups, to increase backup performance and save space. In addition, if you use a disk or volume to store backups, Windows Server Backup automatically deletes older backups as a storage location becomes full. When you create a backup and save it to a storage location, the backup that you create will be saved in a folder WindowsImageBackup\. In addition to the backup, this folder includes catalog files that contain information about all backups on that location up to the current backup, and a file, MediaId, that contains the identifier for the backup storage location. This information is required to perform a recovery.

This document contains instructions to help you do the following: Performing a Manual Backup

Choosing what to back up

As part of creating a backup, you will need to specify the files, folders, or volumes that you want to include. The items that you select to back up will impact what you can recover.  You should only choose:

Full server (all volumes) - Back up all volumes if you want to be able to recover the full server. You can use a full server backup to perform all types of recoveries, including system state and bare metal recoveries.

You must store this backup on an External hard disk. If you store your backup on an NTFS-formatted or GPT-formatted external hard disk, you can: 

  • Recover files, folders, applications, and volumes.
  • Perform system state and operating system (bare metal) recoveries if the backup used contains the needed items.
  • Move backups offsite for disaster protection more easily.

To create a manual backup on an attached disk

  1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Windows Server Backup. 
  2. From the Actions pane of the snap-in default page, under Windows Server Backup, click Backup Once. This opens the Backup Once Wizard.
  3. On the Backup Options page, do the following, and then click Next: 
    1. Click Scheduled backup options.
    2. Click Different options.
      1. On the Select Backup Configuration page, do the following, and then click Next:
        • Click Full server (recommended) to back up all volumes on the server. This is the recommended option.
      2. On the Specify Destination Type page, click Local drives, and then click Next.
      3. On the Select Backup Destination page, select the destination that you want to use to store the backup from the drop-down list. If you choose a hard disk, confirm that there is enough free space on the disk. 
  4. On the Confirmation page, review the details, and then click Backup. The wizard prepares the backup set and checks the media. If the media is Universal Disk Format (UDF) or NTFS and larger than 1 GB, then the backup operation will proceed. If not, then you will receive a message that the media is not large enough or that the format is not supported. You can choose to reformat the media, or insert new media.
  5. On the Backup Progress page, you can view the status of the backup. If you are backing up to a DVD, when the backup starts, you will receive a message to insert the first DVD in the drive and then, if the backup is too large for a single DVD, you will be prompted for subsequent DVDs as the backup continues. During this process, you should physically write the information next to Disk label in the message on the DVD that you insert. You will need this information later to perform a recovery.
