Using the WBADMIN command to use a Authoritive restore and using the DSRM  by using F8 when booting. Im trying to figure out how to restore a back up and havent got very far so far. I assume you use the  Wbadmin start systemstaterecovery get get items -version identifier 10/09/2010-08:10 recoverytarget:C: But cant quite get the command right as just trying out in a test situation. Can anyone give some extra info please.

Wbadmin is applied to : Windows Server 2008 (R2), Windows Vista

Enables you to back up and restore your operating system, volumes, files, folders, and applications from a command prompt.

To configure a backup schedule, you must be a member of the Administrators group. To perform all other tasks with this command, you must be a member of the Backup Operators or the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate permissions.

You must run wbadmin from an elevated command prompt. (To open an elevated command prompt, click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.)

subcommand applies only to Windows Server 2008.

Wbadmin disable backup Disables your daily backups. This subcommand applies only to
Windows Server 2008.

Wbadmin start backup Runs a one-time backup. If used with no parameters, uses the
settings from the daily backup schedule.

Wbadmin stop job Stops the currently running backup or recovery operation.

Wbadmin get versions Lists details of backups recoverable from the local computer or if
another location is specified, from another computer.

specified. subcommand applies only to Windows Server2008.

Wbadmin restore catalog Recovers a backup catalog from a specified storage
location in the case where the backup catalog on the local
computer has been corrupted. This subcommand applies
only to Windows Server 2008.

Wbadmin delete catalog Deletes the backup catalog on the local computer. Use this
subcommand only if the backup catalog on this computer is
corrupted and you have no backups stored at another
location that you can use to restore the catalog. This
subcommand applies only to Windows Server 2008.

NOTES:The wbadmin command replaces the ntbackup command that was released with previous versions of Windows. You cannot recover backups that you created with ntbackup by using wbadmin. However, a version of ntbackup is available as a download for Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows 7 users who want to recover backups that they created using ntbackup. This downloadable version of ntbackup enables you to perform recoveries only of legacy backups, and it cannot be used on computers running Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows 7 to create new backups.

Hope this information will help u lot !
