Hi,

I am trying to take system state backup on windows 2008 server using server backup. I can't see the option just to back up system state , which i did with NTBACKUP before. Instead it is forcing me take full backup.

do i have to run wbadmin maybe ?

how do i get system state backup with windows backup to local drive?
Thanks

F.

You are correct to back up only the system state you need to use the command line version of the tool.
