Backup and restore in SharePoint 2010 -- Can I get a full backup of everything? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just wanted to know what SP backup could do?

    1. Can I backup all the search index and all the settings (including user profile, alternatate urls....)that I have setup in Central Admin?
    2. How about workflows, site settings, all the master pages in my publishing site and mysite (use profile site) and the physical "14" file folder?

    I am asking this in case my servers crash, how much could I restore. And do I need to reinstall the server farm, nlb, ...?

    And besides, do I need extra space to store the backups, where and what format are they being stored btw, is it in a file?

    Thanks in advance. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
