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

Create and schedule proper backup job, go to Scheduled jobs tab, go to job properties where you will find exact command which should be put in bat file. If you need more information, let me know...
