System state of any Vault computer can be included in the backup topology very easily. Once an Agent is installed on any Vault, it is a matter of ensuring that the correct data is included in the CDP backup set.
According to Microsoft, system state includes:
COM+ Class Registration Database
System Boot Files
Files under Windows file protection
If this information is available, a failed Windows server can be completely restored by reinstalling the same Windows Server operating system version, and then restoring this system state information.
Microsoft Windows provides a simple utility, \windows\system32\ntbackup.exe, that can run at any time, during any level of use.
To run the Windows Backup or Restore Wizard
The backup wizard is located in the Control Panel > System and Security > Backup and Restore.
Click Set up backup.
Select a backup directory that the Vault computer can access.
In Windows 7 and later, system files are automatically backed up. You can customize which files and folders that you want to back up.
Click Start backup (make sure Replace the data on the media is selected), save it, and then schedule it.
Click Advanced, and make this a daily event.
