New Backup Features in Windows Server 2008 R2


About This Video
Gordon Ryan checks in again with a very cool screencast highlighting some of the new backup features that arrive with the RC version of Windows Server 2008 R2 including:

  • The ability to backup System State as a separate job as well as the ability to do incremental System State backups.
  • The ability to exclude specific file types, file folders, and specific files instead of having to backup an entire volume.
  • The ability to backup to a volume or a network share instead of requiring a dedicated disk for backups.
