Hello All,

I want to take an image of one of the local win 2003 server and store it on the external disk or on DVD for the recovery purpose.

I think most of the apps are on C and D drive, can I store this image on the external drive or does it has to be on CDs?

Thanks in advance.

    You can boot the server with the SRD and then run a COLD Backup of the volumes.You will not need to install the BESR application
