I would like to create a simple backup script to copy an OS image to an external drive at the end of each day. I know nothing about programming and very little about DOS. Ive searched here and other places but haven't found a solution yet. I've actually created a couple of scripts by reading about it but have not yet been successful with those scripts. At one time I found a VBS script used to create a restore point with just one click. That's what I'm hoping I can do with a backup script whether it's VBS or Batch.
Here's the scenario; Each day my imaging program will perform a full image of my OS and partition. At the end of each day I would like to copy that image to an external drive overwriting the previous days backup. It doesn't necessarily have to be scheduled I could start it manually with no problem. XP will is the OS.
