I have read these articles. The first one is helpful, because what I need to do is edit my old batch files, and incorporate the new features of windows server 2003. Aside from the /SNAP command, what are the other commands I need to add?

Also, I just ran ntbackup by using the wizard. I read somewhere that I can view what the batch file for that backup. How can I do this?

If you start NTbackup and go to the Help index, you can search for the command line options and it will show you all of the commands and switches you can use.

Also, if you use the Wizard and rather than run it now, you choose to create a schedule, you can then go into your scheduled tasks (Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools) and get the current config of your backup and modify it your liking.

You can view the ntbackup command by going into scheduled tasks and simply looking at the task.
