Created the folling batch file to backup SQL Server Express DB. If I copy to the c:\program file\SQL Server folder and run it works but from a folder called c:\mssqlbackup\ it does not. What permissions in windows or sql server do I need to run this?

'--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


C:\Documents and Settings\glennr>sqlcmd -S GLENN\SQLEXPRESS -Q"EXEC expressmaint
 @database = 'test1', @optype = 'DB', @backupfldr = 'C:\Program Files\uniPoint\C
lient\DB\Backups\', @reportfldr = 'C:\Program Files\uniPoint\Client\DB\Backups\'
, @verify = 1, @dbretainunit = 'months', @dbretainval = 1200, @rptretainunit = '
months', @rptretainval = 1200, @report = 1"

SQL Server by default runs with limited permissions.  The account used to start the SQL Server service does not permissions to make changes (create .ldf file) in where you want to put it.
Using Control Panel, Admin Tools, Services applet, go to SQL Server and check the startup account, and give permissions to that account in Windows Explorer, folder permissions, Security.
