Packaging the Backup
U-Move can package the AD data to a .BKF file or to a tape or backup device.
Windows Server 2008-2016: U-Move will write the .BKF file directly.
Windows Server 2003: U-Move will run NTBACKUP to automatically create backup media, such as a .BKF file or tape.
U-Move will ask you to choose how to create the backup:
- Package the data into a .BKF file (recommended).
- Leave the data in the staging folder.
- Package the data into a dataset on a tape or backup device.
We recommend that you use choose the first option, .BKF file. This guarantees the preservation of all critical file data.
