    Thanks for sharing this video here. It's truly helpful. NTBackup tool utility is the freeware tool for backing up the data on a Windows system. Refer to this article for complete information –

    this has little if anything to do with backing up Active Directory on a Windows Server 2008 instance…..

  3. Hunter Danforth says:

    I don't see anything in the "select items for backup"

  4. Vince B says:

    You are not even backing up AD…. Change the title to how to use Windows Backup Server

  5. William Brown says:

    I thought what you explained was clear and I like that you took several approaches. However, I am still confused about AD. Can I make the smaller system state backup that you mentioned and restore AD from that? Also, does all of this apply to 2008 R2 as well? I use Acronis, which is similar to Ghost. It corrupts AD on the restore. So I'm looking for a way to ensure that I can restore AD once I have restored the disk image of the server. Thanks in advance, Bill.

    @Nowa: Sneaky MS requiring R2 to get the graphical restore AD process.  If you have the older version, you must use the command prompt.
