Use this page to view a list of backups that are registered in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory configuration database for the selected AD LDS (ADAM) instance, if any, and select a backup.
The list only includes the backups that are registered in the Recovery Manager for Active Directory configuration database. In the Online Restore Wizard, you can also use backups created by applications that store backups in Microsoft Tape Format (MTF), such as Windows Backup or Veritas Backup Exec. To use a backup of this kind, select Register.
Use this page to select a backup to compare with the previously selected one. This window appears after you select the Compare two backups and report the differences option in the Wizard Operation Mode window.
Only backups of the same AD LDS (ADAM) instance can be compared. The first of the selected backups must be older than the second one.
Use this page to optionally change the folder where Recovery Manager for Active Directory will unpack the selected backup. The Path to store unpacked backups box displays the path to the folder currently used to keep unpacked backups. Each unpacked backup will be saved in a separate subfolder of that folder. To leave that path unchanged, click Next. To specify other path, type the path to a new folder or click Browse to select it. When finished, click Next. Your changes will not affect the default settings for unpacked backups.
This page enables you to view the progress of the backup extraction. To stop the unpack process, click Cancel. You can also have the wizard keep the extracted data for future use. When the Keep extracted data after completing the wizard check box is selected, the wizard saves the extracted DIT database in a temporary folder, so you can reuse this information for subsequent starts of the Online Restore Wizard or Group Policy Restore Wizard. The temporary folder is specified using the General tab of the Unpacked Backups Policy dialog box. When this check box is cleared, the extracted data is erased when you close the wizard. Because the unpacking process is a lengthy operation, you should not close the wizard unless you are sure that no additional objects need to be compared or restored within the current session.
