As the number of mission-critical applications running on Windows NT grows, it becomes vital for administrators to safeguard data from loss or corruption. While a myriad of Microsoft and third-party software and hardware solutions are currently available (and more are becoming available every day), there is very little guidance for the administrator faced with the problem.

Beginning with a discussion of the need for a workable recovery policy and ways to translate that policy into requirements, Windows NT Backup & Restore presents the reader with practical guidelines for setting up an effective backup system in both small and large environments. This book covers the native NT utilities and also includes a discussion of major third-party hardware and software. Numerous checklists help guide you through the various decisions you need to make to implement an effective backup system.

Contents include:

  • Introduction to recovery concepts
  • Policy and requirements definition
  • Special NT requirements
  • Software options
  • Hardware considerations

Administrators will want to have this book handy at each step as they plan and implement their recovery plans.
