    Hi all,

    I need to back up some files from server 2 to server 1 using scheduled tasks. I have created a folder on server 1 and shared it> I then Logged into Server 2 and mapped the shared folder. How can I run a schedules task(need a batch file maybe ) To copy the a folder in server 2 and save it on server 1(shared folder).

    Many thanks

    Use RoboCopy instead, much better. Remember to turn off the retry option.

    cheers, Paul

    It's not really an answer to the question you asked, but several years ago I was delighted to leave the labyrinthine complexity and obscurity of NTBackup command line parameters by installing BackupAssist to front-end NTBackup...
