i am looking to start a backup job with ntbackup in windows 2003 using a command line script so that it loads the . BKS file and runs.
normally you have to open the backup utility and then select the file with the backup settings.

i need to have it so users double click one file and the backup with all it's settings starts automatically.

thanks
