Recovery Manager for Active Directory from Quest Software Inc. recovers accidental deletions or modifications of Group Policy Objects or organizational units. The Forest Edition recovery process is now more closely aligned with Microsoft's native forest recovery approach, which gives Windows managers the option to restore some DCs from backup and to restore others through uninstalling and reinstalling AD with DCPromo.
