HI guys

I'm doing backups of servers with backup exec. However, in the restore the 'System State' hasn't been available. Everything else on the server has.

These are not domain controllers etc.

Can the server be restored if anything happenec? Or will I need the system state also?

Thanks
Yash

you would also need the system state, which contains the servers registry information to perform a complete restore.
