    NTBackup - Command Line

    I setup our Accounts server to backup to our NAS as well as tapes but set the jobs to amend rather than replace. I dont really want to delete the 5 different backups so can anyone help me with which part of the command line i change so it replaces rather than amends.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.SHEBBEAR\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\Wednesday Backup.bks" /a /d "Set created 24/04/2008 at 12:44" /v:yes /r:no /rs:no /hcff /m normal /j "Wednesday Backup" /l:s /f "\\titan\PASS$\Wednesday\PASS.bkf"

    Thanks.

    /A is the append and iirc 'normal' behaviour is to replace so you won't need to add anything in its place.
