Change \\NTSERVER\NTServerC\Backup to the UNC path of your network location:


xcopy /e /v /y C:\Documents and Settings \User \\NTSERVER\NTServerC\Backup

Looks like I had an extra space in there:

xcopy /e /v /y "C:\Documents and Settings\User" \\NTSERVER\NTServerC\Backup

I use this below personally on my laptop.  H; drive being my mapped network drive.

@echo off
:: variables
set drive=H:\Backup
set backupcmd=xcopy /s /c /d /e /h /i /r /y

echo ### Backing up My Documents...
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%\My Documents" "%drive%\My Documents"

echo ### Backing up Favorites...
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%\Favorites" "%drive%\Favorites"


:: use below syntax to backup other directories...
:: %backupcmd% "...source directory..." "%drive%\...destination dir..."

echo Backup Complete!
@pause

FYI, you can also use the Files and Settings Transfer wizard (Accessories > System Tools > Files & Settings transfer wizard). If, that is, you want to transfer a user profile from one place to another.

for a quick overview of the swithes type "xcopy /?" from the command prompt.

The batch file i gave you is setup to automatically grab the current users folder.
