Backup/restore question


  • I have a customer with a 2008 SBS server. It is about 4 years old. The original disk is a 250 GB, which is divided into 80 GB on C and the rest on E. We just purchased a 1 TB disk to replace the E drive. My plan is to transfer everything on the current E drive to the new disk and then remove the 2nd partition on the primary disk and expand the C drive to use this space.

    My question is this - If I use the Windows server backup/restore app to restore the contents of the current E drive to the new disk, will it re-create the share points and security setting that I previously had set up on this disk? IS that the best way to accomplish this or is there another method that would be better?
