Hello,

Is there any way to recover a 2000 server using ntbackup? I understand ntbackup will not backup open files. Is it pos to backup the C drive to different partition and then restore this file at a later date to recover the server??

Thanks in advance

You'll end up with the same problems (open files which are opened for exclusive use) while copying the C drive to another partition. I'd instead suggest using a backup tool that creates a shadow volume for backup. This will enable you to create a working backup without any downtimes. The downside is that all files will be backed up in the exact state that they had when the backup process began. One backup program that supports shadow volumes for example is Acronis True Image (visit www.acronis.com)...
