Enable recovery of individual SharePoint files

Platí pro: Windows SBS 2003

Your company Web site is based on Windows SharePoint Services. If a file or list item is accidentally deleted from your company Web site, you can restore it without having to perform a full recovery from your backup media. Instead, you can create a copy of your SharePoint database on your hard disk. Use the following procedure to enable this scheduled task.

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Scheduled Tasks, and then click Add Scheduled Task.

  2. Click Next on the first page of the Scheduled Task Wizard.

  3. Click Browse, go to %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\60\Bin, and then double-click Stsadm.exe.

  4. Select how often you want this task to run, and then click Next.

  5. Select the time you want to run the schedule, and then click Next.

  6. Enter administrator credentials, and then click Next.

  7. Select the Open advanced properties when I click finish check box, and then click Finish.

  8. On the Task tab in the dialog box that appears, in the Run box, type "%SystemDrive%\Program files\Common files\Microsoft shared\Web server extensions\60\Bin\Stsadm.exe" -o backup -url http://Companyweb -filename target path -overwrite, where target path is where you save the backup of your internal Web site. Click OK. You must type the quotation marks.


You might want to exclude the path of your duplicate SharePoint database from the backup by using the Backup Configuration Wizard. For more information about how to back up Windows Small Business Server 2003, see Back up Windows Small Business Server.
