I maintain a Small Business Server 2003 and would like to increase the number of stored backups past the maximum of 10 currently allowed by NTBackup.  The backups will be stored on a Terabyte Hard Drive.  I have searched online and scoured the registry for the relevant key.  It would seem that information on this particular aspect is scarce.  I would like to avoid 3rd party software if possible.  Can anybody point me in the right direction?

I would simply create a new directory, and MOVE the old 10 backups into a new directory, and let NTbackup , create 10 more.


I hope this helps !
