You might want to review my article on backup - it does NOT specifically give the instructions you request, but you should be aware of some of the issues you need to consider when planning your backups.

leew,

That is an awesome article - would you have any complaints if i passed that link on to another fella on here that hosts a whole load of windows networking articles? (Brian AKA MkBean)

Can you provide me a link to his "hosted" articles?

Strictly speaking, the last paragraph of the article reads:
"You may copy the content of the page in whole or in part provided you include a link directly back to this page"

So no, but I do prefer to know who's doing it...

Of course - i understand that completely

www.adminprep.com - that's Brians site he is one of the MS trainers...

I just thought i would double check before i pass on the link, if he wants to incorporate it, he would be in touch with you first of course, thats a detailed document on an often "looked over" topic
