  • Problem with NTBACKUP

    Hi All,

    I am working as a Junior system administrator in a gaming company with around 90 systems.

    I am preparing for MCSE certification.For that i prepare one windows server 2003 system and two clients.

    For testing purpose, In server system i took the backup of system state with the help of ntbackup.In the backuplog it showing

    Total directories:256
    Total Files:2567
    Size of the files:403,144,344

    Then i delete the system files ntldr and boot.ini files from c:\...Then restart the computer.It showing ntldr is missing...So,I kept the ntldr file by pressing F8 button on bootup and restore it using repair option.

    Then restart the computer..on boot up it showing Invalid Boot.ini

    Then normally start the system..then i try to restore boot.ini file using backup of system state which i took previously..

    I restore the system state using ntbackup.In the backup log ip showing

    Total directories:256
    Total Files:2567
    Size of the files:403,144,344

    Then i restart the computer..But same error it showing Invalid Boot.ini file...Then i navigate to C:\ and search for boot.ini
    ..it is not there..

    But the backup log showing successful restore the backup...

    If your bootloader goes wrong, you'd be much better off fixing it with the recovery console. The System State backup is really more suited to recovering registry settings, and to a lesser extent non-core files.

    Why would you want to do that? What possible benefit would you gain by partially hiding the presence of some software?
