Subject: [exchangelist] System State Restore

We are running Exchange 2003 on Windows Server 2000, I am restoring my
system state backup to a new machine. I need to know some points.


when I restore to a new windows 2000 machine it asks for where I restore

-          Single Folder


What is the best option to choose?

What is the best option to choose?


What we are trying to do is - restore the backup to a new machine and
upgrade to Server 2003.
