Have a full backup and 3 incrementals to run on a regular schedule.  However, cannot figure how to set up command line for backup job(s) in Scheduled Tasks.  Would like to set up 4 backup jobs in scheduler.  Any ideas?

gbuck,

Are you trying to use the Microsoft Scheduler that comes with Windows or are you trying to use the software that comes with the Backup Hardware?

Microsoft Scheduler.  Also noticed that MSBackup requires(?)someone to press the start button.  Found some documentation the other night that indicated that you could not get around the pressing of the start button.  I am looking for total unattended operation.  On Seagatesoftware.com, they have a Backup Exec which has a scheduler. It appears to work, but there is a cost involved($49).  So I'm still interested if what I want can be accomplished with Scheduled Tasks and MSBackup.

gbuck,

Didn't your tape backup hardware come with some software.  As far as I know most tape hardware come with the software that can do what you want.  Please e-mail me at krantz@mediaone.net and I will see what I can do.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

I saw the same note you apparently did about not being able to automate backing up. Seemed very bogus to me, since I could do it in Win95 by putting the name of the backup file on the command line. Anyway, my new computer came with BackupExec, and its scheduler works like a charm. It is worth the money for unattended backups. Good luck.

gbuck,

Sorry for the long delay with posting this as I have been quite busy lately.  Here is the answer re-post as you suggested in our offline e-mail.  Ok...now I know what you are trying to do.  In that case BackupExec will not work for you as it only supports backups to a tape drive.  What you will want to use is a program I found a few weeks back called "FilebackPC".  It is an excellent program and allows backups to multiple different devices, i.e. Zip, Jazz and other hard drives.  This program is shareware, but only costs $20 versus the $50 for BackupExec.  There are other programs out there but none of them support scheduling events, as well as, the rest of the goodies that come with this program.  This file can be found at http://www.winfiles.com

Happy Holidays,
-Krantz
