We want to backup to USB drive, however it keeps coming up as a 'local disk' not 'removable media'.

If i do custom and select c drive will that do system state etc, i want to reinstall to a new server and just restore one backup


This is Server 2008 (Not R2)


thanks

Potentially, but it will be slower and all the users are laptops so not the easiest, i had thought this, but wanted to know if it would include system state etc

Network backups can be faster than writing to slower USB media.

A Windows Backups will include the system state, and can be used to Disaster Recovery, Bare Metal restore.

I think I found the answer in the chart on this page http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/404a51b5-99a6-43d1-b5a5-36261cb5ade2 - Volume backup = Back up just individual volumes if you only want to be able to recover files, applications, or data from those volumes.

I'm going to have to move the drive to another pc, share it and run the backup to there.
