security settings and printers
Posted on 2002-05-23
Recently I had a server crash due to a very high voltage spike that fried our UPS, two hard drives and the DLT drive. While awaiting the replacement drive’s I setup/rigged the server and restored the data from a local computer, which has an 80 GB hard that I copy the data to (I don’t trust tapes)using xxcopy. I have since replace the drives and restored some miscellaneous data that I didn’t have copied. I had to setup security on everything from memory/e-mail archives and users complaints as well as the printers (16) from scratch. This got me thinking about which files NT use’s to store security settings on folders and printer setups? If I would have had a copy it would have saved me many hours of work. Can anyone identify these files?
