    Change NT Backups from Append to Overwrite?

    I have several NT Backups running which when set up were set to append. We now want them to be set to overwrite. When i open the existing back up i can't seem to find out how to change the setting to overwrite. The only thing i have done so far is delete the original back up job and re-create it from scratch and i don't want to do this on all of them hence this post?

    Any ideas?

    Have a read through:
    Microsoft Corporation

    Try going into scheduled jobs, you'll see its just running ntbackup.exe with a lot of command switches. I guess you'd just remove a "/A" to perform a normal backup.

    As always, keep a backup of the original job, and test.. No responsibility here for breakages.
