Windows Backup is a fantastic backup application. However, I don't know a way how to make another backup task. It seems stuck on only one task.

So how to create another task that backups, say, to a network share. That would provide a nice redundancy.

thx

Hi,

you need to use task scheduler for that, in combination with wbadmin.
Simple create .bat script with wbadmin in it, and then create as many tasks that you want, that will run in certain time.

More about this, with example: https://exchangeserverpro.com/schedule-windows-server-backup-exchange-2010/

Regards,
Ivan.
