New HD Video Bare Metal Recovery of Microsoft Small Business Server 2011: Part 1 How to Backup Microsoft Small Business Server 2011

Whilst on the subject of Backup and Restore, I also get asked “How Do I perform a Bare Metal Restore of Microsoft Small Business Server 2011?”

All the software is provided by Microsoft to perform a Bare Metal restore of Microsoft Small Business Server 2011. The application we use is called Windows Server Backup, available from the Start bar. So there is no excuse to try and practice, the software is included for free, and following these videos, you will also be able to perform a Bare Metal Recovery of your Microsoft Small Business Server 2011, should the need arise from a recent backup.

Firstly, we need to complete and run a Full Backup. You could backup to a another local disk, external USB hard disk, but I prefer to backup to a network location, which happens to be a Western Digital Worldbook NAS. I’ve already created a share called backup, so the full UNC path to the backup location is \\nas\backup
