Human error and hardware/software failures can easily corrupt Active Directory, system configurations or Group Policy data. This can result in objects being modified or deleted by mistake and faulty scripts can overwrite attributes meaning unplanned system downtime and possible days of lost user productivity.

  • AD recycle bin - Use a wizard-based console to direct you through a streamlined recovery process, effectively creating a graphical Active Directory recycle bin
  • Online, granular restore - Restore directory objects without the need to restart domain controllers. This eliminates downtime and any impact on users who are logged on to the network
  • Comparison reporting - Use reports to compare the online state of AD with its backup and highlight changes made to the directory data since the backup
  • Comprehensive recovery options - Take advantage of the only solution that restores any object in AD, including users, groups, computers and organisational units
  • Attribute-level restore - Restore individual attributes, such as account settings, group memberships and binary attributes, even when the object itself have not been deleted
