    Thanks for your sharing, very detailed. But, why not deploy 3rd party software? I think these programs are more easy to use. I can recommend a Free trail one to all of you. AOMEI Backupper Server: All server platforms are supported.

    Why don't I get the extra option to "add items".  Mine let's me ONLY select full backup.  Does a full backup include system state?  

  12. jeffwads says:

    15 GB of backup vs the old 700 MB or so for Windows 2003.  Yikes.

    Hey fella, thanks for the great info! By the way, there's a new cloud and local backup solution that supports automatic backup of VMware, Hyper-V, Exchange, SQL, files, and the whole Windows Server 2008 R2 system to Amazon S3, and other enterprise-class cloud storage such as Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, FTP/SFTP, etc. I personally quite like it and have deployed this solution for over 20 customers. 30-day fully functionable free trial available. Worth to take a look:

    I'm with @smithcl118, why didn't you do an authoritative restore? If your deletion replicated to another DC, its just gonna get erased again when it replicates back
