Scripted backup of Server 2008 using robocopy or other

We need a script to be able to have filebased backups for webserver with several hundred webpages, where we can also restore single files if possible.
I know most people suggesting backup software such as Veritas or Acronis (no 2008 support yet anyway), but we need to use build in tools to achieve that. Why Microsoft remove ntbackup is beyond me ...

The best solution would be a VBS script of some sort. I found some hints here in EE but most of them end up using third party tools which we need to avoid.

Also : System State ... did someone manage to make a System Stage backup of Server 2008 using build in tools ?
