How to Manually Backup the SharePoint farm located on your office network

Note that Microsoft’s SharePoint does not use any native file synchronization mechanism. As a result, it is not as simple as copying files to a hard drive. It is instead synchronized to the SharePoint service on the network, as described in this example.

We assume that you have assigned a unique ID to each user on your network.

Step1Prepare the directory on which the backup task will be performed:

1. Configure the Microsoft KMS client service.

2. Install the Windows Server 2008 R2 service.

3. Configure the Windows Server 2008 R2 agent.

4. Start Microsoft Word.

5. Configure the KMS client instance to connect to the KMS server.

For Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 only:

1. Download the Windows 2000 synchronization package.

2. Run the synchronization adapter self-service.

3. Configure the Microsoft KMS client service.

4. Configure the Windows 2000 server to connect to the KMS server.

Open Server

* Open a command prompt.

* Type “ectl ‘dir *.edtz'”.

* Locate the directory on which the .edtz files will be stored.

* Rename the directory from *.edtz to ‘.zip’ alone, without changing the file extension.

* Change the file system to NTFS.

5. Upgrade the KMS server to Microsoft KMS 5.0.

Unzip the contents of the edtz file to the’.zip’ folder.

6. Open the command prompt again.

7. Type “dir *.edtz’ followed by the name of the directory.

* Locate the directory and the .edtz file, then let the computer run the directory command.

8. Double click the name of the file, then let the computer run the command to rename it.

9. Finally, delete the directory from the Windows disk.

In Windows XP

1. Select Start.

2. Type in ” dir” (dot) and press Enter.

3. Right-click the directory that has been listed and press Delete.

This will rename the file. Windows XP will automatically make a backup copy of the file the first time you perform this operation.

4. Restart the computer.

5. Type “dir *.edtz” on the Windows search box.

6. Locate the old directory file and the new directory file.

7. To rename the old file, press CTRL+A, or the mouse button, drag the new directory file to the top of the list, and press SHIFT+DEL.

8. Restart the computer.

9. Type “del /f” on the Windows search box. Wait for a few seconds.

10. Restart the computer.

11. Locate the new file and the old file, and delete both of them.

12. Restart the computer.

13. Type “rdutil -R” and press Enter.

14. Restart the system.
