How do I backup Windows 2003 with ASR without floppy drive??
Posted on 2007-04-10
I'm trying to make a backup of my Windows 2003 with all it's settings (Active Directory, IIS, network settings, installed programs, etc) and would like to use the built in ASR in Windows backup since it's proven by Microsoft so I know it's safe. Not to mention it's free so that's also a plus.
What I want to know is why on earth is ASR still using floppy disks?? My server doesn't have a floppy drive and was wondering if there's a way to create an ASR without a floppy disk? What information does the ASR floppy disk hold anyway? I tried changing the drive to a media disk, but there's no option on where to save the ASR floppy disk data, it insists on A: drive.
I looked into Norton and Acronis, but I want to use Window's free and proven method of ASR (there are tons of settings I need to be sure gets saved). Any ideas on how would I accomplish this? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
