Add-WBSystemState

Adds the system state components to the backup policy.

Syntax

Add-WBSystemState
   [-Policy] <WBPolicy>
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-WBSystemState cmdlet adds the system state components to a policy contained in the specified WBPolicy object. Use backups created through this policy to perform a system state recovery.

The WBPolicy object must be in edit mode. To put the WBPolicy object in edit mode for a policy that is set as the scheduled backup policy, use the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet with the Editable parameter. The New-WBPolicy cmdlet creates a new WBPolicy object that is already in edit mode.

To use this cmdlet, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.

Examples

Example 1: Add system state to the backup policy

PS C:\> $Policy = Get-WBPolicy -Editable
PS C:\> Add-WBSystemState -Policy $Policy

This example adds a setting to the WBPolicy object to include the system state in backups that you create by using this policy.

The first command stores the result of the Get-WBPolicy cmdlet in the variable named $Policy.

The second command adds the system state to the backup policy in the $Policy variable.
