Windows Server 2003 Windows Restore

Restoring Data to the Server

If a data loss occurs, you can restore your backup data manually or by using the Restore Wizard, which is included in the Backup feature.

 


To Restore Selected Files from a File or Tape

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup. The Backup or Restore Wizard starts.

2. Click Advanced Mode.

4. Click the media that you want to restore, and then click to select the check boxes next to the drives, folders, or files that you want to restore.

5. In the Restore file to box, specify the location where you want to restore the files by doing one of the following:
• If you want to restore the files or folders to the same location in which they were when you backed up the data, click Original location, and then go to step 7.
• If you want to restore the files or folders to a new location, click Alternate location.

This option preserves the folder structure of the backed up data.
• If you want to restore the files and folders to a single location, click Single folder.

6. If you selected Alternate location or Single folder, type the location in which you want the data to be restored, or click Browse and select the location, and then click OK.
