What Is Backed Up for Windows File Servers?
You can backup the data that resides on your client computer and restore it when required.

New Technology File Systems (NTFS)
Transactional File Systems
Distributed File System (DFS) data
Oracle ASM Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS)
Resilient File System (ReFS) on Windows Server 2012

Cluster database (if this server is part of a cluster)
Terminal Server Licensing database

- Data from the Web Server on Windows Server 2012 is not backed up.
- Response File Group Configuration is not backed up when you back up the Lync Server. For more information about backing up Response File Group Configuration, refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh202170.aspx.
- By default, the directory junction point is backed up but the source data (data linked to junction point) is not backed up. This prevents undesired backup and restore of system created directory junction points. To back up the source data of a junction point that is not part of a subclient contents, the source data must be explicitly added to a subclient's content.
