Will BackupExec 2012 QuickStart Edition backup Active Directory?

We have 2 Server2008R2 servers, both acting as Active Directory Domain Controllers. We have the QuickStart Edition of BackupExec 2012 that came with the Dell RD1000 removable drive backup system on one of the servers. Will the QuickStart Edition backup the Active Directory domain information, or do we require a full version?

It will backup Active Directory for a DR restore as it is part of the System State of a Domain Controller and it will back that up.

 

It will not allow indidvidual object restores (GRT) of things like users, groups or their properties.
