Restore Data

In this section, we'll discuss how to properly restore a DC, AD data, and other data. Most restore procedures don't offer a scripted method to recover data. This is for a good reason: It prevents a script from running and restoring bad data into the environment.

There are different disaster scenarios and recovery processes, depending on what you need to recover. Multiple processes exist for some scenarios. It's important to understand the options you have when a disaster strikes, so you can make the best decision about how to proceed.
