Windows: Location of DNS zone files

If the file is not in the %systemroot%\system32\dns directory, the full path to the zone file will be shown on the General tab.

Since most zone data is held in the registry, restoring the %systemroot%\system32\dns from backup isn’t enough – you’ll need to manually populate the DNS zones in the DNS console, and choose the ‘specify location’ option for the zone file on each domain to get the records back.
