Backup Windows Server 2003 system state with its built-in backup program
If you are a Windows operating system user, no matter which system you are suing, Windows XP, Windows 2008, Windows 7 or Windows 8, the Windows built-in backup and restore utility would permit you to perform backup and recovery for your computer. Make Windows Server 2003 as an example, you can do backup and restore for your system state, files, hard disk/partition and computer settings for your Server with the Windows Server 2003 built-in backup program.
Three steps to run Windows backup program easily:
- Step1: Open Start Menu to choose All Programs, and then select Accessories.
- Step2: As a result of Step 1, you will see a new menu, find and click System Tools.
- Step3: Please access Backup option in the System Tools menu.
Note: if you are not in the mood for the tedious and endless steps listed above, you can just try another method which is pretty simple. Please run “ntbackup” command by cmd.exe to open Backup or Restore Wizard program
