    Automated System Recovery
    As mentioned earlier, as a best practice you should include ASR backups as part of your system recovery plan. Create ASR backups when you install new hardware or service packs to help you recover from a system failure. However, ASR does have its limitations and it should be used only as a last resort after you've tried other recovery methods, such as Safe Mode, Last Known Good configuration and the Recovery Console.

    Remember to back up your data separately because ASR backup sets don't include data.
