Windows backup utility

Hey guys,

This may seem like a stupid question but here I go anyway. A consultant setup backup job on my 2003 server in the backup utility. Well, I need to remove them so they no longer run and modify them so that they do not go into the folder that he designated. How do I do this?? Im trying to remove the backup jobs and I cant figure out how to do it... please help!

You need to be in advanced mode in order to see the current scheduled jobs.

Open Backup.
The Backup or Restore Wizard starts by default, unless it is disabled.

Click the Advanced Mode link on the Backup or Restore Wizard.
Click the Backup tab and select the files and folders you want to back up.
Click Start Backup.
On the Backup Job Information dialog box, click Advanced.

Hi,
If you go to Server Management, then click Backup, then click Configure Backup - this will run the wizard, click next, then select Do not use Small Business Server Backup - agree to the warning, click next, then click finish.

One question though, why do you want to stop backup up your server?

Maybe I misunderstood it was just the job that had to be deleted and you still plan on using the server backup utility? Int hat case what I have posted is what you need. All you would have to do once you delete the job would be to runt he backup wizard again to choose the folders etc you want to backup.

I want to delete them because they were setup by a consultant way back and are no longer what I need. I need to make modifications to them and I cant figure out how to delete them or change them

Let's be clear - if you are using SBS, then you need to use the wizards.  If you are NOT using SBS, you can delete the backup jobs direct from the Scheduled Tasks panel.
