System State restore allows you to recover a functional system without reinstalling the Windows operating system. It can be useful when you want to perform the following:

Typically, when you perform a System State restore, all components are restored to their original location. However, the NetVault also allows you to restore the System State data to an alternate directory without affecting the active system.
