Simple Restore

A simple restore will reload only the Active Directory Database. It makes no other changes to your computer. It is the quickest and easiest way to restore the AD database.

A simple restore will reload only the Active Directory database files (typically C:\Windows\NTDS\*) and the System Volume (typically C:\Windows\SYSVOL\*).

A simple restore can be done only on the original computer where the backup was made.

A simple restore can reload AD from a backup of the System State created by Windows Server Backup (wbadmin start systemstatebackup).
