Hi All.
I am using windows server 2000 and ntbackup.
I wish to write a script to automate the backup process.

I have searched on the internet and found some answers, but not all.

I understand that i must create the file using the gui and then open the schedule task and copy the data to the file to become my script.
The issue i am having is making any sense of adding the date and time stamp to it.

Please can someone advise me of the what a time/date stamp should look like in my script and where it should go.

thanks in advance
