File and System State (Active Directory) Backup using Microsoft® NTBackup

  • Licensing
    BackupAssist Core Module
  • Supported OS
    Windows 2000, XP, and 2003
  • Method
    Windows Backup (NTBackup.exe)

BackupAssist includes in-built integration with the Microsoft Windows Backup Utility (NTBackup) for backups to both disk-based and tape drive hardware devices. NTBackup is pre-installed with most versions of Windows (2000, XP, and 2003) and is a proven and tested backup method that millions of computer owners use with great success. With NTBackup, your backups will be stored in non-proprietary formats, and your data can restored on any Windows-based machine (2000, XP, and 2003) without needing additional software.

If you are sick and tired of running into NTBackup problems, confused by batch files, command line parameters, and media pools, and frustrated by the poor scheduling and functionality of NTBackup, BackupAssist is the ready-made solution for you.

  • Transform NTBackup into a reliable, rock-solid and dependable backup solution
  • Eliminate complicated batch files, scripting and RSM headaches
  • Automatic scheduling in accordance with your choice of media rotation scheme
  • Enhanced email reporting - vastly improved reporting that includes media usage reports
  • Fully integrated hardware support – tapes, USB HDDs, burning DVDs, FTP and more
  • Backups stored in Windows Backup Utility format - restore your data using any Windows-based machine (2000, 2003, XP) without needing BackupAssist

Straightforward scheduling with industry-standard rotation schemes

Set up your backup jobs the easy way and save hours of your time with BackupAssist, which features straightforward scheduling with industry-standard rotation schemes.

Simply point and select your desired scheme – from simple daily schemes to the 'Grandfather-Father-Son' scheme.

You can also customize schemes with full, incremental and differential backups, monthly and weekly archiving policies, etc, to suit your specific needs.

Email notifications - stay informed

Normally, NTBackup doesn't provide any warning when things go wrong, leaving you vulnerable to crippling data loss! BackupAssist solves this problem by sending you an email notification after every backup, telling you whether the backup succeeded or failed. This foolproof system means that you'll always know the status of every backup - making the whole process more reliable, simple and convenient.

We've also included other useful information in the report, such as the media usage report which clearly shows you how much space your backup data is using, and how much is left on your backup device.

Daily email reminders to minimize human error

If you're backing up to portable media like tape, USB HDD, REV or rdx, you'll love this feature.

The daily email reminders tell you exactly which tape or disk to use. There's no need to manually keep track of complicated rotation schemes. The backup rotation process is made simple, slashing the probability of human error.

Fully integrated hardware support

With BackupAssist, you can easily:

  • Eject tapes after each backup, so it's ready to be swapped
  • Perform a “Safely Remove Hardware” (USB Eject) for USB HDDs after each backup, so it's ready to be swapped
  • Automatically assign the correct drive letter to USB drives that have been plugged into the wrong port
  • Burn your backup to BluRay, DVD or CD
  • FTP your backup
  • Manage your backups easily – choose how many to keep

And if you've ever had problems with tape media pools, you'll love BackupAssist because it manages it seamlessly, works around bugs in Windows and hides all of these complexities.
