using the Built-in Backup tool in w2003 server

I have a folder with subfolders and files,and I want to use the built-in backup tool in windows 2003 server.
but it prompts me to save the back as .bkf file. in this case is it going to save all selected folders/subfolders/files as one file?
in fact what I need it do is to backup the folders/subfolders/files as they are in the source to the target.

Any help on how to do that?

Thanks

Yes, it will put all the backed up files and folders into that single .BFK file.

If you've looking ta copying files from one place to another, XCOPY or Robocopy is a better alternative.

can you please write me a batch file for xcopy then create a log that compares the size of source and destination files
the time it started backing up and the time it has finished backing up?
