I am trying to use the Windows 2000 Pro utility backup wizard to save a few files on a remote server automatically.  The issue I am having is that when I run the wizard it keeps trying to find a Backup.bkf file.  What is the best way to create this file?

one more note..

dont select "backup to a file" option in the wizard.. cos this option will already require a .bkf file.. so you just foloow the wizard and backup the data.. first.. that will create a .bkf file.. then later on.., if you want to add more to the backup.. you can specify " backup to a file" option and select the file that u created in the first step
