Performing a System State Backup in Windows Server 2003

Follow the instructions below to perform a system state backup in Windows Server 2003. We realize this is an old operating system, but there are a lot of companies (including clients I have recently worked with) still using Windows Server 2003.

System State Backup

Step 1

Go to the Start menu > Accessories > System Tools > Backup.


Step 2

Click on the hyperlink called “Advanced Mode.”


Step 3

Click on Tools > Backup Wizard.


Step 4

Click Next.


Step 5

Select “Only back up the System State data” and click Next.


Step 6

Choose your backup destination, name your backup file, and click Next.


Step 7

Click on the “Finish” button.


Step 8

You will see the backup progress go for a few minutes and then you will want to verify that your backup file exists.
