Restoring Windows Scheduled Tasks (Windows 2003 Server)

How can we export the Windows scheduled tasks(Windows Server 2003) and restore them afterwards in case the server becomes unavailable.

I need a mechanism or script to capture the information/details of the Windows scheduled tasks such that we can reproduce them.

You can use explorer to copy the Tasks. Explore to c:\winnt\tasks and you can drag and drop it to another mapped machine. Alternatively can copy the jobs using the copy command at a dos prompt. The jobs have the suffix .job and exist in the c:\winnt\tasks directory
