Windows Server 2008 provides Windows Server Backup for creating backups on local and remote systems. You use Backup to archive files and folders, restore archived files and folders, create snapshots of the system state for backup and restore, and schedule automated backups.
The Windows Server backup and recovery tools are available for all editions of Windows Server 2008, including both 32-bit and 64-bit editions. However, you cannot install the graphical components of these utilities on core installations of Windows Server 2008. On servers running with a core installation, you need to use the command line or manage backups remotely from another computer.
