In What Condition Do We Need to Restore Our Server 2003 System

With the constant use of your operating system and the aging of your computer hardware, your Server 2003 may inevitably crash because of many reasons. To avoid those unwanted accidents, you should figure out what problems may lead to operating system failure. These are five typical reasons which are responsible for data loss caused by system crash. We listed the main reasons as below:

  • Incompatibility in the hardware

  • Bad RAM (random-access memory)

  • Overload operation in hard drive

  • Virus invasion

  • Software conflict

How to Restore in Windows Server 2003?

Unlike its upgrade versions such as Windows 8/7/Vista and Windows Server 2008/2012, Windows Server 2003 does not have an automatic system restore feature. Consequently, Windows Sever 2003 cannot automatically create a restore point of the computer’s current normal work state to prevent system crash in later time.

However, Windows Server 2003 comes with a manual restore tool – Windows Server system State. To open System State, there are four steps to follow:

  • Step 1. Click "Start" button to open Start menu, then select "All Programs".

  • Step 2. Find and click "System Tool" from the All Programs menu, after that, choose "Backup".

  • Step 3. In Backup menu there is an “Advanced Mode” link, click it open to highlight "Restore and Manage Media" tab.

  • Step 4. After the Step 3, you will find a box next to "System State" option. Check it to operate.
