Backup individual files and folders using Windows 2008 Server Backup

At a loss here.

For some reason when I attempt to setup a Windows 2008 Server backup, I am unable to backup specific folders. It only gives me options for Volumes. Does anyone here know why this is the case?

Thank you,

Try the following command
wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:<Drive Letter>: -include:<drive letter\folder name\>
Please update the status..

Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2008 uses volume backup and didn't support backup of individual files in original Windows Server 2008.
The possibility to backup specific files and folders has been put back in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Thank you, darn it I should have waited for R2.. I guess on a different topic, can you updrage Windows 2008 to Version R2?
