You can create a batch file for this purpose.

some steps already available.
Here is a simple method you could use:
1. Use the ntbackup GUI interface to create a backup job. Make sure to
specify that it should not run now but later.
2. Open the Task Scheduler, then open the backup job that you just created.
3. Mark & copy the whole command line.
4. Create the new batch file c:\Windows\MyBackup.bat
5. Paste the backup command line into it.
6. Create some blank lines at the top of the file, then paste the following
code into the batch file. Use copy & paste - do not retype it!
@echo off
echo > "%temp%\tmp.vbs" wscript.echo 10000 * month(now()) ^
+ 100 * day(now()) + year(now())-2000
for /F %%a in ('cscript //nologo "%temp%\tmp.vbs"') do (
set MyDate=%%a)
ntbackup /.. /.. /.. /F d:\Backups\Backup%MyDate%.bkf
7. Adjust the last line of the above code so that it matches your own
switches, then remove the original ntbackup command line.
8. Use the Task Scheduler to create a task that will invoke
c:\Windows\MyBackup.bat instead of your previous backup command.

It will be easier if you setup the ntback as scheduler and then you go to the schedular to edit the same. it will have complete path and everything.
