Can you remotely set up a backup on Windows 7?

is there a way to remotely schedule a backup on Windows 7? Something other than actually remoting to the machine and set it up?

Thank you!

Try the schtasks command in Windows7. With administrative rights on a remote computer, I can lookup tasks just fine like this:

schtasks /query /s <computername>

Do a schtasks /? and you'll see that you can create, delete, query, change, run, ... tasks.

Hello, let's try to understand your question: you want to remote schedule a job without remoting to the machine? What do you mean by 'remoting' then?

Like on Windows XP scheduled tasks was shared, it's no longer shared on Windows 7.

So with Windows XP I could remotely schedule a backup just by managing the computer via Computer Management.
