VB.Net & Backup

Hi Experts,

I want to do 3 things from a VB.Net program.

1. back up system / windows file
2. back up data / folders from HDD
3. restore those from particular location

Kudos to "sedgwick" who gave e an excellent way to call Ghost API from VB with the following line.

To back up the main hard drive:
Process.Start("c:\progra~1\symantec\Norton~1\ghostexp.exe", "-clone,mode=dump,src=1,dst=d:\backups\maindrv.gho")

Can anyone give me the ways, what may be the syntaxes?

Regards,
Soumen

@HaiFai,

I am not very familiar with Ghost. So I am not very sure which of the commands are need to be used for those three activities. Can you help to figure out those three command with their parameters, please?
