C:\Users\j3\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

cmd files begin when server starts

You should be backing up your Server, and in particular, the Users folders should be included in the backup. This will then include the startup folder you want.

You can copy the contents of the startup folder to another media, but it seems a small point in that the entire server needs backing up.

There are software that can backup full image of your server and can restore to another bare metal server without worrying installing drivers, its more like a replica. One of this is acronis. Or, you can just copy that folder to your backup server if you are only backing up that particular folder.

Users folders should be included in the backup
backup the entire users folder (down from users/startup)
but the restore may not work if I just copy paste but I will have users/startup
so I think your idea is good backing up a more root folder to have more data

I do not have access to the hardware because server is virtual and online

godaddy would reimage

Even if Virtual, you should be able to copy the startup folder to your own media.
