Chapter 20. Windows Server 2008 R2 Manag... > Server Manager Storage Page

Server Manager Storage Page

The Storage folder in the Server Manager has two tools to support storage in Windows Server 2008 R2. These pages allow the administrator to see the status of storage and the backups of the storage.

Windows Server Backup

The Windows Server Backup page shows a summary of the backup state of the server. This includes information on the status of backups, how much disk space the backups are using, and what the oldest and newest backups are. This allows an administrator to understand how recoverable the server is at a glance. The backup subsystem in Windows Server 2008 R2 has fundamentally changed from a backup-to-tape job paradigm to a backup-to-disk state paradigm, requiring a different understanding of where backup stands. It is not enough to know that the latest backup job completed, but rather the span of the backups and how much space they take up.
