I have requirement to backup with NTBackup (2003 Server) a selection of 930 Home Directories from a total of 2800 Home Directories.

The prospect of manually selecting 930 folders from the NTBackup interface is daunting in itself but is extremly prone to human error.

I have carrid out initial research (Google) but I am unable to find a complete solution to manually (By Batch or Vscript) create a backup file where I can include the unc paths of the Home Directories that I require to backup.

I am thinking of a batch file in the format below ?

ntbackup backup \\server1\Home$\user1 /j "RedundantHomeFolders" /f "\\BackupServer1\DataStore$\HomeFolders.bks"
ntbackup backup \\server1\Home$\user2 /j "RedundantHomeFolders" /f "\\BackupServer1\DataStore$\HomeFolders.bks" /a
ntbackup backup \\server1\Home$\user3 /j "RedundantHomeFolders" /f "\\BackupServer1\DataStore$\HomeFolders.bks" /a
.
.
.
ntbackup backup \\server1\Home$\user930 /j "RedundantHomeFolders" /f "\\BackupServer1\DataStore$\HomeFolders.bks" /a

Help and guidance in this matter is sincerly appreciated.

Thanks

Is there a reason why you're just just backing up \\server1\Home$\ which will select all the folders within my default?
