Windows Server Backup Volume Recovery (part 1) - Windows Server 2008 R2 Data Volume Recovery

12/5/2010 11:02:08 AM
When an entire disk or disk volume has been corrupted or has failed and needs to be replaced and recovered, Windows Server Backup can be used to restore the disk or volume. Local disks, local folder backups, network backups, and DVD backups can be used to restore an entire volume using Windows Server Backup. When an entire volume needs to be recovered, unless the volume contains system data, the volume can be restored using the Windows Server Backup program from within a running operating system. If the volume contains system folders, the restore needs to be restored using the Repair Your Computer option when booting the system using the Windows installation media.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Data Volume Recovery

When a data volume on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system has failed and needs to be restored using Windows Server Backup, perform the following steps:

1.
Log on to the Windows Server 2008 R2 system with an account with administrator privileges.

2.
Click Start, click All Programs, click Administrative Tools, and select Windows Server Backup.

3.
In the Actions pane, select Recover to start the Recovery Wizard.

4.
On the Getting Started page, select either to restore data previously backed up from the local computer or a different computer. For this example, select This Server (Servername), where Servername is the name of the server Windows Server Backup is connected to, and click Next to continue.

5.
On the Select Backup Date page, select the correct date and time of the backup you will use to restore the data, and click Next to continue. Days with a successful backup are formatted in boldface.

6.
On the Select Recovery Type page, select the Volumes option button, and click Next to continue.

7.
On the Select Volumes page, the window displays each of the volumes contained in the backup that was previously chosen. Check the box next to the desired volume that will be restored, and select the destination volume to which you will restore the backed up volume. Figure 1 displays that the backed-up G: volume will be restored to the existing G volume; click Next to continue after the correct selections are made.

8.
After clicking Next on the Select Volumes page, a window opens, requesting confirmation that the data on the volume(s) will be lost by the recovery process; click Yes to continue with the volume recovery process.

9.
On the Confirmation page, review the selections. If everything looks correct, click the Recover button to start the volume recovery.

10.
On the Recovery Progress page, the recovery status of the volume will be displayed. After the recovery completes, review the results and click Close if the recovery was successful; otherwise, select the Errors tab to review the errors.

11.
If the volume recovery was successful, the only additional step that might be required is to reboot the system if the data on the volume is shared or used by any applications or services. Reboot as required.
