The native Active Directory backup and recovery features from Microsoft are not suitable for object-level backups, and attribute-level restorations. With RecoveryManager Plus, you can backup and restore not only all AD objects but also other essential AD elements such as Schema attributes, group membership information and Exchange attributes. Additionally, recover deleted objects, and roll back entire AD to a previous point-in-time state in a few simple clicks.
Back up all user objects and restore entire objects or just specific attributes to a backed-up state—also, rollback users to a particular point-in-time in the past.
Back up all OUs and restore them to a backed up state. Recover deleted OUs and all child OUs of the deleted OU in a single click.
Back up both security and distribution groups, and restore or roll them back to a previous state.
Back up group membership information of users and automatically restore their security and distribution group memberships when they are recovered or restored.
Back up and restore changes made to classes and attributes in the schema partition.
Back up and restore all group policy objects in your domain. Track each change made to GPOs and undo undesirable changes.
Back up all DNS zones and DNS nodes of your Active Directory. Track all DNS configuration changes and back them up for easy restoration in case of disaster.

To back up AD users, computers, and any other AD object:
Yes. Using RecoveryManager Plus, you can back up all AD objects in your AD domains, including users, groups (distribution and security), GPOs, OUs, Exchange attributes, DNS information, computers, dynamic distribution groups, and contacts. You can restore all these objects to any of their previous states when needed.
You can back up all changes made to schema classes and attributes using RecoveryManager Plus, and restore them to any previous state when needed.
It is recommended you take a full backup of your AD at least once a month and you incrementally back up changes made to AD objects on a daily basis. RecoveryManager Plus provides multiple full backup and incremental backup frequencies for you to choose from.
By default, Recycle Bin is disabled in Active Directory and has to be manually enabled. Once enabled, it cannot be disabled. RecoveryManager Plus's Recycle Bin on the other hand is built-in and is enabled right from the moment the product is installed. You do not have to enable the native Recycle Bin for RecoveryManager Plus's Recycle Bin to work.
