Hi,

1. Windows Server 2008 is down due to ransomware.
2. I tried restore backup from setup disk.
3. Backup dated 29/9/2016. After restore, i found out the system has already been infected with virus.
4. How can I restore backup 27/9/2016?
5. Windows server backup feature in win 2008 is corrupted with renamed .lnk file.
6. Can I reinstall the windows backup feature in win 2008? Should I?

Any help will be appreciated.

I was using a daily auto schedule backup which comes with win server 2008. There shuld be system backup images.

Best bet is to reformat the hard drive (only if you have an installation disk), then from the install disk, select the option to restore from the backup. I'm not sure where you store your backups; if they're on a network share or external storage, make sure that is connected to and accessible from the server.

This applies to DCs, but will work with servers as well.

sflatechguy is correct. And then I would look into a different recovery option. Windows backup isn't worth staking your job on it takes a while to recover and the recovery options are limited.

Should also look at the ransomware topics on this site to see if maybe you can decrypt your files as well if your backups are totally hosed. Worth of a shot if you dont have a backup that recoverable.
