Backup: The act of copying data (usually files) to some other storage media in case of equipment failure or other catastrophic event.

Compression Unit: A segment of a stream that the object store can compress, encrypt, or make sparse independently of other segments of the same stream.

Default Data Stream: The unnamed data stream in a non-directory file. Many operations on a default data stream affect the file as a whole.

Restore: The act of copying data (usually files) back to its original storage location from some other storage media after some form of data loss.

Software Defect Management: A mechanism for the object store to manage and remap defective blocks on removable rewritable media (such as CD-RW, DVD-RW, and DVD+RW).<1>

WinPE: Windows Pre-installation Environment.

MAY, SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as described in [RFC2119]. All statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
