In this lab, you will back up information on a Windows Server 2003 through the use of the built-in NTbackup program. The steps are as follows:

Step 1. Create a folder called admin. Stock it with a few files.

Step 2. Open the NTbackup program by clicking Start > Run and typing ntbackup. Deselect Wizard mode and restart the program to run it in regular mode.

Step 3. Click the Backup tab.

Step 4. Expand the + sign for the C: drive.

Step 5. Click the admin folder to view the contents.

Step 6. Checkmark the admin folder to back up all the contents within the admin folder.

Step 7. Click the Browse button to select where you will back up the data. This could be to tape, removable media, or elsewhere on the drive. For this procedure, back up to another folder on the C: drive.

Step 8. Name the backup. Consider adding the date into the filename of the backup. Then click Save.

Step 9. Click the Start Backup button. This displays the Backup Job Information window. Leave the default settings.

Step 10. Click the Advanced button.

Step 11. Select the Verify data after backup checkbox.

Step 12. Click OK.

Step 13. Click the Start Backup button.

Step 14. When the backup is complete, jot down the amount of bytes that were backed up. Next, view the report by clicking the Report button. Make sure that the data was verified within the Verified Status portion of the report.

Step 15. To represent the loss of data because of an unexpected event, go to Windows Explorer and delete the admin folder. Delete it from the Recycle Bin as well.

Step 16. Restore the deleted data from the backup file.

Step 17. Return to the NTbackup program.

Step 18. Click the Restore and Manage Media tab.

Step 19. Click the + sign next to File.

Step 20. Click the + sign for the backup that you just completed. View the contents inside the backup.

Step 21. Checkmark the backup and click the Start Restore button. Compare the amount of bytes that were restored to the amount of bytes that was originally backed up.

Step 22. Return to Windows Explorer and view your admin folder. Verify that all the contents of the folder were restored properly.
