Restoring Active Directory

When run on the same computer, U-Move will restore the Active Directory database and related files only. It does not require you to restore the entire operating system (also called the System State).

U-Move restores only the data files associated with Active Directory. It preserves all operating system files including all EXE files, DLL files, and device drivers. This gives you the fastest and safest way to recover the Active Directory database with minimal side effects.

U-Move can restore Active Directory in emergency situations. For example, U-Move can read damaged or corrupt .BKF files that NTBACKUP cannot read. And U-Move can restore an old backup that has expired (made more than 60-180 days ago).
