Restore Windows Server 2003

Dear all,

Today I test the disaster recovery of a Windows Server 2003. I have a good complete backup of the system hard drives and configuration.

After reading the section "Assisted Manual Disaster Recovery of a Windows System" I perform all steps sercribed into this section and the restore went fine until I reboot the server and got a blue screen on death with a message saying the system has softdown to prevent damage to hardware. After the dump file was created, the server reboot itself and now this time I got a corrupt file under windows installation folder.

I would like to know if this is possible to restore an entire windows system sucessfully with Data Protector 6.0. This time, this is only a testing feature, but I want this works if this happen for real. I already restore a windows system, but it was with Backup Exec. It was a long but sucess process. Hope Data Protector can do the same.

Thank you and best regards,
Yanick
