    Copy Data of Server 2008 R2 Backup Disk

    I'm just testing out windows server backup 2008 r2 on its own dedicated drive.

    Does anybody know a way of being able to connect to the drive to migrate it to a remote location?

    I was thinking of having the backup run at 7pm then at 2am copy across to our backup server

    Use a script to do your backup with wbadmin and then make it wait in the script until that process is finished and then the next line, use Robocopy to transfer it over.
    In batch it would be something like
    Code:
    start /wait wbadmin blah blah
    robocopy blah blah
    Or other Powershell or VBS equivalents.

    I have never done it, but maybe there is a way to refer to the device name eg

    \Device\Ide\IdeDeviceP3T0L0-4
    and use that as the path somewhere.
