When you have to take your system offline because of a hardware problem or migration, you need to restore your operations as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can get back to business. The key to a successful system recovery is having a fully loaded, fully functional recovery disk.
The SRD is based on Microsoft WinPE (pre-installation environment) version 2, which boots much faster than previous versions of WinPE. To use the SRD:
For most restore operations you need only click the Recover My Computer button on the Home page to launch the Recover My Computer wizard, where you can choose to restore by date, filename, or system. Restoring by date is the fastest option. However, choose this option only if you are restoring the backup to the original server. If you're restoring the backup to a different Windows-based server with an alternate hardware configuration, you will need to choose to restore by filename, browse for the backup file you want to restore, and enable the Restore Anyware feature. Choose to restore by system if you want to recover an entire system.
The key to success in any endeavor is having the right tool to get the job done. When it comes to successfully restoring a system protected by Backup Exec System Recovery, the right tool is the Symantec Recovery Disk.
