'at 23:00 "C:\Winnt\System32\ntbackup backup C: /v' where 23:00 is the time the operation is to run, followed by the program to run (ntbackup), backup operation (backup), path to be backed up (C:), and options (/v = verify, /a = append, /b = backs up registry, etc). Type

Have a look in the Help file, it's well documented.
But better forget it and get a product as Arcserve wich gives you much more reliability security and manageability.

NTBackup sucks!!! I agree with the other comment. Get a real backup program you will be glad you did. Used it and paid for it, now i am too using ArcservIT and I love it.

You must start de Scheduled service with a admin Account (with grant to log as a service on this machine)

For Example
Create a batch file "back.bat" with
ntbackup backup d:\ /hc:on /L "D:\Backup_report.log" /e
ntbackup eject

At the commandline of your nt machine
at 21:00 /every:M,T,W,Th,F "d:\bat\back.bat"

Attention if yo need more than one tape, don't use AT command to start ntbackup. In this case you never receive de POPUP to invite you to insert new tape, and you must kill NTBACKUP via Task Manager.

Good luck.

First of all start the schedular service on the server that will run the NTBackup.
Create your backup script:
E.g.
CD C:\winnt\system32ntbackup backup C:\ D:\ /v /hc:on /d "Full Backup" /b /t normal /l "C:\backup\backup.log"
ntbackup eject
this script will do a full backup of drives C: and and use the hardware compression.
Hope this helps.
