        RecreateDefPol.exe is a tool developed for the restoration of the Default Domain and Default Domain Controllers policy files, in case of accidental deletion. This tool is for use exclusively on Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server, and DataCenter Server. Do not use this tool on Windows Server 2003; use Dcgpofix.exe instead (included in Windows Server 2003).

        This tool is intended for use only in disaster recovery situations, where either the Default Domain Policy, the Default Domain Controllers Policy, or both have been damaged or deleted, and no other backup is available. This should be considered a tool of last resort.
