I want to do an automatic daily system state backup of my 2012 R2 DC. I only want to keep the backups of the last 2 days.

There is one caveat: I want to backup to a network share (and via the wizard it only allows one version of my backup).

This should be possible via a scheduled task or something, no?

Thanks a lot for the help already!

Kind regards,
System Engineer
