You can use the Backup wizard in Windows Server 2003 to make a full system backup and a recovery disk that you can use to restore the server. It's called ASR (Automated System Recovery).

Thanks, but it does not backup any data, isnt it? Only system files and windows configuration, i think – Abraham Borbujo May 10 '13 at 10:52
Hi. The server has no floppy, so is there any way to backup to external or network drive without needing recovery disk? Or maybe can i use usb pendrive instead if floppy? – Abraham Borbujo Jun 27 '13 at 9:16
