    NT BACKUP

    Hey people just a quick question I am using NT backup on a windows server 2003 to backup files onto a external hard drive. I have just gone and had a look at the backups and for some reason it is backing up all the folders but not individual files located within the folders I have had a look at the backup log and that seems fine. Any help would be much appreciated thank you

    1. You can use the GUI to do this.
    2. You're using a script "Full Server Backup.bks" - You need to check in there what it's backing up.

    yeap it is backing up but just backing up files. as its just backing up folders but not the files within the folders does that make sense

    Full Server Backup.bks is the script, I believe, what you have posted is the command to execute the script. Check the path below

    C:\Support\Scripts\Full Server Backup.bks

    1. I would create you bks file again via the GUI, it doesn't look right
    2. Also, not sure why you have specified the /n switch twice?
