Can some one give me the command to be ran from a .bat file that will
backup C: drive and system state to an external hard drve at E:
and
the same command for backing up for example
back up from c:\foldertobackup to E:\backedup2hear

I've tried to create these backup commands in a bat file but nothing happens

Thanks

The last piece of the puzzle was found at

and
I changed the first part of my bat file command to say
C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe  
instead of
ntbackup
ok, thanks for the update and the grade. Good luck.
