Windows Server 2012 Online Backup Service - Part 3

Introduction
Backing up information to cloud something, it might look easy. But sometimes it could cause other issues too. But what is your view on this area ?Should we go for cloud backup or we just use what we are doing it now?

Configuration
To perform a restoration, it is not so hard as the console given you all the capability that you should know. The first thing you need to do is to click on the restore data option.



You will have an option as below, to choose this server or from another server. You just need to know where the data was origin from.
The 2nd screen, give you more flexibility as it give you an option to browse the folder that you have backup before as well an option for you to choose the files that you would like to restore.
If everything is completed, you would be able to select more info from here. However I am not able to perform the complete backup. Please do have a try on this and submit your feedback too.

As for now , you should be equip with the knowledge of configuration on performing backup as well as performing restoration. However, one of the last thing that you should learn is the deletion of the backup. You can find the screen above after you click change property on the main screen. You can decide to delete the data or keep it in the cloud.

If you would like to use powershell, you can use the following syntax Get-OBPolicy | Remove-OBPolicy –DeleteBackup –Force

Stay tune for more windows server 2012 blogs, I will be sharing more with you.
