This section of documentation provides you with complete instructions on how to use the Bare-Metal Restore functionality in Server Backup Manager.
Bare metal restore is the process of reformatting a computer/server from scratch after a catastrophic failure. In conventional methods, the process typically involves reinstalling the operating system and software applications and then, if possible, restoring data and settings.
With R1Soft backup technology, you can restore servers directly from disk-based backup. There is no need to first partition your drive and re-install the operating system.
With Server Backup Manager, you can use Bare-Metal Restore with the help of the following tools:
- Live CD Agent
- Live CD Server
- PXE Network Boot Agent
- PXE Network Boot Server
