Educative Answers Team

Bare Metal Restore

Bare Metal Restore is a data recovery method in which no operating system or software needs to be installed before restoration. Hence, the name, Bare Metal Restore.

Of course, there has to be a valid system image available to restore from. A system image is essentially a backup copy of the whole drive. Using this technique, all settings, applications, data, drivers, installations, and even an operating system can be restored into the computer, making it fast and error-free. The restoration leaves the operating system and applications in a state ready-for-use.
