Uranium Backup
The most complete and versatile software for multiple data transfers and backups.

Configuring a System State backup

Feature available in all Uranium Backup commercial editions.

In a nutshell, a System State backup is a “lightweight” edition of the drive image backup, available only for Windows Server operating systems. It doesn’t allow a bare metal restore of the system but includes several pieces of data useful to fix a broken or corrupted server. According to Microsoft, a System State backup includes the following:

  • Boot files, including the system files, and all files protected by Windows File Protection (WFP)
  • Active Directory (on a domain controller only)
  • Sysvol (on a domain controller only)
  • Certificate Services (on certification authority only)
  • Cluster database (on a cluster node only)
  • The registry
  • Performance counter configuration information
  • Component Services Class registration database

All the commercial editions of Uranium Backup can perform System State backups. We suggest to always perform System State backups alongside Drive Image backups.

Let’s see how to configure a System State backup.
