#10: Windows Server Backup

Windows Server Backup

Hey wait, wasn't this a new feature with Windows Server 2008? Well, yes it was. But R2 has added key improvements to a tool that not everyone was crazy about when it first replaced the usual NTBackup feature. These include the ability to take System State backups and schedule backups to shared network folders.

The knock from some is that it's still not suited for large enterprises where third-party backup tools or Microsoft's Data Protection Manager are a necessity, but the R2 edition still includes some much-needed improvements over the original.
