I have little understanding on System State, please bear with me if I am asking the obvious.
Based on the information found; the purpose of system state is in the event after hotfix or installation of new program, the OS crashed, system state backup is used to restore the OS configuration files (registry being one of those).
Given a scenario like this; a windows 2000 sever; with LOTUS installed. The system crashed for some reason, Windows will have to reinstalled, and Lotus application as well.
How does a system state backup be put into good use?
Any inputs on this to assist me in further understanding system state would be very much appreciated.
