Bare Metal Restore

In data recovery, a bare metal restore is one where a computer system is backed up from bare metal state. This type of data recovery will include using a backup to restore the operating system, application data, user data, and software. The hardware system the restore is being done on must be the exact same configuration as the system the restore was created for.
