Using the 'PRINTBRM.EXE tool to back up my print server, I continue to get the error,
Error: Unknown argument: -B
When entering the full command:
c:\windows\system32\spool\tools\printbrm.exe –B –S \\oldservername -f c:\temp\Printerbackup.printerexport -nobin

What does this error mean and how can I overcome it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
