    Backup Server to a Windows Share (SMB)

    Good Morning Everyone

    Is there anything out there that will allow me to backup a weeks worth of data automatically to an SMB share over the network. I have got Windows Server Backup to do this but currently when backing up using this onto an SMB it will only do a days worth and as far as I can see there is no way to do a weeks worth if doing it to an SMB share. Bit of a shame really!

    Hoping some of you maybe able to shed some light on this!

    Cheers

    Add a file name change sequence once the backup has run, This allows you to run a number of backups

    ?:
    cd ?:\WindowsImageBackup

    for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=/ " %%d in ("%date%") do rename %computername% %%d-%%e-%%f

    you can also add a line to remove backups after a specified amount of time

    ForFiles /P "?:\WindowsImageBackup" /D -10 /C "CMD /C if @ISDIR==TRUE echo RD /Q /S @filE &RD /Q /S @filE"
