BK2010 System State, Registry, etc.. Worth backing up?
Out of curiosity, how often has recovering files from a: system state, shadow copy, or the registry been useful? I’m heavily considering using just the agent-less backup feature for VMware VMs, but unfortunately this agent-less backup doesn’t backup system state, shadow copy, or the registry.
I’m just trying to get a feeling for how often/useful backing up these areas of Windows has been for other BK admins. Please share your thoughts if you have time. For what it's worth the disasters that I've encountered have been complete messes, with a rebuild being the only option/set of full backups from tape.
