I am using Windows Server 2008 R2 and I am about to create a one time backup of a system drive (D: approx. 2TB - contains files and folders only), using the 'Windows Server Backup' tool. I'm planning on saving this backup to an external HDD.
I will then rebuild the server and installing Windows Server 2012 R2.
Is it possible to restore the Windows Server 2008 R2 D drive backup to the newly built Windows Server 2012 R2 server? Is there anything I should be aware of before commencing this backup and restore?
