Full backup vs. system state backup

    General discussion

  • Hi all,

    If I have WSB doing nightly backups of my OS and data volumes, is there any reason to also do a regular system state backup? As I understand it system state can be recovered from the full backups.

    I have already decided to back up GPOs separately from the nightly backups for quicker restores, wondering if I should do the same for system state.

  • Hello,

    Full Backups will give you an option during restore for a system no need for  system state backup if you are already doing a full backup
