Backing Up Data

Windows Server 2008 has an additional role installed called Windows Server Backup (WSB). Backup consists of a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, command-line tools, and Windows PowerShell cmdlets.

New Windows Server Backup (WSB) Features
  • You can protect the entire server without using a separate backup and recovery technology
  • Backup entire server or selected volumes
  • Use wizards, tools, and the Complete PC Restore feature to assist in recovering a server
  • Easier to restore to a point in time
  • Can use Backup to provide application recovery
  • Improved scheduling utility
  • Better remote administration both from the GUI and through Windows PowerShell
  • Windows PowerShell brings us extensive command line support
