My automated scheduled backup job is failing because when kicked it's off there is a prompt .. something in regards to.. "your backup is being saved on a external driver.." I will catch the exact message on my next back up that I have to run manually.

How can I add a flag or switch to answer yes and continue backup process without failing?
please help

Try using Acronis Bacup and Recovery
you wont regret buying it
It comes up with lots of nice features
and send email notifications about the status of the backup
you can even restore image to any machine available in case of disaster using universal restore plugin

Why not backup to local disk, then copy to external hard drive, done? delete backup on disk all in one script.
