I am having some trouble with SBS 2008 backup... I have 5 drives labeled Monday through Friday... I would like to have a full backup to each drive on each weekday...

I am not sure how to set this up in SBS 2008... in SBS 2003 it was easy.

Please help... step-by-step please.

Thank you.

You can setup the backup do this, but not from the SBS console. You will need to start the Windows Server Backup. On the right is Backup Schedule, You will have to go through that and add each backup drive, one at a time so the backup program can format them. And set the schedule to backup once a day at what ever time you want. Then also on the right is Performance Settings. You can go in there and select Always perform full baclup.
