Password Protect NT Backup Files

We run multiple NT Backup jobs using task scheduler and batch files.  Is there a way to put passwords on the NT Backup files to prevent someone from restoring them without the password?  We will need to do this automated in the batch file or NT backup configuration script.

Thanks

no, there is no password option, however you can restrict it to administrators..

Switch: /R:{yes | no}
Description: Restricts access to this tape to the owner or members of the Administrators group.

Thanks.  I think we will look for some way to encrypt the files automatically on the server.
