About the the Intelligent Disaster Recovery Configuration Wizard

The Intelligent Disaster Recovery Configuration Wizard appears on the Backup Exec Getting Started section of the Home view. This wizard prompts you to set an alternate data path for the computer-specific disaster recovery file, called a *.dr file.

The asterisk (*) represents the name of the computer for which the file was created. A *.dr file contains specific information for the computer being protected, including the following:

  • Hardware-specific information for each computer, such as hard disk partition information, mass storage controller information, and Network Interface Card information.

  • A list of catalog entries that identify the backup media that is used to recover the computer.

  • For Microsoft Vista/Windows Server 2008/Windows Server 2008 R2/Windows 7, Windows Automated System Recovery (ASR) configuration information file (asr.xml). The ASR file is necessary to recreate partitions on Windows Vista/Server 2008/Windows Server 2008 R2 computers during the recovery process.

  • For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 computers, Windows Automated System Recovery (ASR) configuration information files (asr.sif and asrpnp.sif). The ASR files are necessary to recreate partitions on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 computers during the recovery process.
