I have gone round and round, and no love is being given.  Here's my command:

wbadmin START BACKUP -include:C:,D: -vssfull -backupTarget:X: -allCritical -quiet  >> C:\backupLogs.txt

I get an error that my syntax is incorrect...

I want to do a full system backup of the C and D drives...to the X drive.  X is there, I can browse it and all that.  Running as Admin, Server 2008 R2.

Thank you.

Hi

Syntax looks correct but i have this feeling >> C:\backupLogs.txt
is not supported by Windows, it looks like a Linux redirect.

You could try replacing this piece of command by:          -output:C:\backupLogs.txt

Patrick, you are correct, if I remove that line it runs.  It claims to complete successfully, yet the X drive remains empty.  I'll give you the points, but do you have any ideas why the backup says it finished, yet the destination drive shows no sign of any backup??

Try windows server backup, also I'd try creating a folder and aim the log there. Try a local drive like c:\backuplogs\log.txt

Try running without the quiet option and it should show you why.
