How to implement network sharing restore in Win 2003


Everyone must remember the system restore function of Windows XP, but it can only restore the files of this machine, but can't do anything about sharing files. With the introduction of the Windows Server 2003 operating system, this problem has been solved. This small Dongdong is the Windows Server 2003 Volume Shadow Copy Service, which creates a copy of files stored in network shared files at predetermined intervals. Once the shared files are maliciously modified or destroyed, users can restore them based on these copies. Is it convenient? Let's use them together!

Step 1: Enable the shadow copy service. In a Windows Server 2003 system. Open “My Computer", right click on the hard disk partition where the shared folder is located. Note that this partition must be the NTFS file system. Select “Properties", then switch to the "Shadow Copy" tab, select the hard drive partition in the options box, and click the “Enable" button to enable the Volume Copy Service.

Step 2: Adjust the time interval parameter for creating a copy file. By default, the Windows Server 2003 Volume Shadow Copy Service can only create two copies per day, which simply does not meet our needs. In the "Shadow Copy" tab, click the “Settings" button, then click the “schedule" button, and finally click the “Advanced” button in the “Schedule” box, at “ In the Advanced Planning Options > dialog box, select the “Repeat Tasks" option (as shown) to set the interval parameter for creating a copy. The user sets according to the importance of the shared file. If it is set to “10 minutes”, it should be noted that the time interval parameter should not be set too small, otherwise it will increase the burden on the server.

Step 3: The user uses the shadow copy feature. First, install the shadow copy client program on the client. It is located in Win2003 server's "%systemroot%\\system32\\clients\\twclient\\x86\\ twcli32.msi"; only Windows 2000 (SP3 or higher) and Windows XP guest operating system. The shadow copy feature is available after the client installation is complete. Find the server shared folder to be restored on the client, right click, select “property", switch to the “previous version" tab, and then select one according to the time in the "folder version” box Require the copy file, click the “Restore” button, and the folder will be restored to its original state.
