2.6.3 Restoring Files and Folders
You can use the Backup utility in Windows Server 2003 to restore files and folders. The Backup utility
includes a Restore wizard that steps you through the entire restore process. However, you can also restore
files and folders without using the wizard.
To restore files and folders without using the wizard, open the Backup utility, and specify the folders or files
to restore; a restore location; and the Restore options, such as whether to replace existing files with backup
Note: To avoid data loss and to preserve file and folder features, such as
encryption and permissions, you should restore data that is archived from a
Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 NTFS volume to another Windows
2000 or Windows Server 2003 NTFS volume. Restoring the data to a FAT
volume or to a Windows NT 4.0 NTFS volume might result in the loss of
access permissions, Encrypting File System (EFS) settings, disk quota
information, mounted drive information, or Remote Storage information.
