ASR backups are written to a backup medium, such as tape, which can then be used to restore system to its prior state. Also required is a floppy disk, which is inserted when ASR Wizard is run.
To restore, Windows Installation CD is used to boot up machine. The ASR floppy disk is inserted, and ASR restore process commences. The process is completely automated, and system is restored without further intervention.
ASR backups are a crucial part of your backup plan that will save you both time and money. If you perform an ASR backup each month or when making major system changes, you'll be able to restore system easily when need arises.
