Where is RDISK in Windows 2000?

A. A. The RDISK.EXE utility has been replaced with an option in the NTBACKUP.EXE utility.

  1. Start NTBACKUP.EXE (Start - Run - NTBACKUP.EXE)
  2. Select "Create an Emergency Repair Disk" from the tools menu
  3. Insert a blank formatted disk in drive A: and click OK
  4. Click OK to the completion message and click OK

The recovery disk can no longer be used to restore user accounts etc. and you will need to backup/restore the Active Directory which will be covered in the backup section.
