ERD for Windows 2000

By Jacky Chin ·
Any idea, how can I do this command 'rdisk /s' in Windows 2000. Because I used this command for all my NT 4 servers to update the local 'systemroot\repair' folder then copy over to another specific server for backup purpose. Of course, I'm using this 'at' command and everything done automatically. I do not want to use this 'regback' & 'regrest', unless I have no choice.

I have not seen any DOS based command for the repair disk for 2000, only the GUI.

The emergency disk utility in 2000 is in the backup software, this can take the actice directory also previously known as the Directory Database, this utility can be scheduled whenever you want it to happen.

Did you know that rdisk /s- does exactly the same thing but does not bother you with the diskette stuff, everything goes to the repair folder.

Yes I know the dos and at are faster to acces bus less userfriendly, hey more people can do it now.

To create an Emergency Repair Disk:

3. Insert a formatted 1.44MB floppy.
4. Check the Also back up the registry... check box.
5. Press OK.

In windows NT, an ERD (Emergency Repair Disk), can be used to repair (reset) the registry. In Windows 2000, the Inspect registry files is not available during a repair process.In knowledge Base article Q216337, Microsoft explains that the Windows 2000 registry is too large to fit on one disk.Microsoft further asserts that to backup the registry,you must do a full system backup, including the system state.
I have spent the better part of last week, trying to disprove that statement. So far, it appears that they are correct.I am still trying to recover from an innocent registry hack on my workstation. I will pr
