  • Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2008 manages your backup files so that if backup data needs to be read from several files, for example, when several volumes on a folder that has been backed up incrementally need to be restored, the process occurs automatically. Determining which backups are required when restoring from incremental backups was a problem in previous operating systems, but now this is done for you.

  • Hi;

    You no longer need to manage full and incremental backups. Instead, Windows Server Backup will, by default, create an incremental backup that behaves like a full backup. You can recover any item from a single backup, but the backup will only occupy space needed for an incremental backup. In addition, Windows Server Backup does not require user intervention to periodically delete older backups to free up disk space for newer backups—older backups are deleted automatically.

  • Please confirm that you are using Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2008/2008 R2...

    If so, yes you can. You can select Recover option in Windows Server Backup main UI and select your desired recovery point based on the time of backup operation.
