Which data is saved during system state backup?

The system state backup contains specific information about the Windows installation and application settings of the device. By creating a system state backup for a device, you will be able to restore the entire Windows installation and all Windows applications if, for example, a hard drive on the device ever becomes defective.

The following data is included in a system state backup:

  • Boot files, including system files, and files protected by Windows File Protection (WFP)
  • Active Directory (if the device is part of a domain)
  • Sysvol folder (if the device is a domain controller)
  • Certificate Services (if the device is a certification server)
  • Cluster database (if the device is a cluster node)
  • Registry
  • Performance counter configuration information
  • COM+ class registration database
