70-687 Configuring Windows 8.1 – sample exam – Q58

All client computers in a company’s network environment run Windows 8.1. A client computer has two internal hard disk drives. The hard drives are configured as shown in the following table.
You are choosing a backup destination for drive C.
You have the following requirements:
Ensure that the backup file is available if drive C fails.
Ensure that the backup file can be accessed by other
computers on the network.
Support the backup of multiple system images.
You need to select a backup destination that meets the requirements.

Which destination should you select?

A. shared network folder
B. drive D
C. multiple DVDs
D. external hard drive

Correct Answer: D

Shared network folder will only support one system image:
That applies to internal / external disks:


Keeping different versions of system images:
If you’re saving your system images on an internal or external drive, or on CDs or DVDs, you can keep several versions of system images.
On internal and external hard drives, older system images will be deleted when the drive runs out of space. Conclusion is to use external HDD and share it over the network. What Are Dynamic Disks and Volumes?

Like basic disks, which are the most commonly used storage type found on computers running Microsoft Windows, dynamic disks can use the master boot record (MBR) or GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme. All volumes on dynamic disks are known as dynamic volumes. Dynamic disks were first intro- duced with Windows 2000 and provide features that basic disks do not, such as the ability to create vol- umes that span multiple disks (spanned and striped volumes), and the ability to create fault tolerant vol- umes (mirrored and RAID-5 volumes). How to Use Windows 8’s New File History Backup (aka Time Machine for Windows)

The Difference Between File History and Windows Backup
Windows Backup still exists in Windows 8, it’s just been renamed to “Windows 7 File Recovery.” So, if you want to back up your files, you have the choice of which system you want to use. Windows Backup (now called “Windows 7 File Recovery”) backs up your computer on a schedule you set –for example, once a week on Sunday at 2am (though the default is once a month). You can choose to back up whatever you want, from a small selection of personal files to program files to anything else. You can even create a full system image, which is handy when you want to restore your computer to exactly the way it was at a certain point in time. To restore files, you had to go into it’s slightly confusing interface and find the files you were looking for in a set of folders on your backup drive.
