System state recovery instructions

  1. Install the Backup Manager device that was used for System State backups (we recommend restore-only mode).
  2. (for domain controllers) Reboot the machine in Directory Services Restore Mode.
  3. Recover the System state data source.
  4. When the recovery process completes, reboot the machine to apply the changes.

After that you can switch Backup Manager to the full backup and recovery mode to continue backups on the new computer.
