Howdy All,

I want to create a shortcut on the desktop that can simply be double clicked
to run a backup job for ntbackup.

I have tried, but when I create the shortcut it just flashes the backup
utility on the screen and nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Brian

Go to the backup, schedule the job, and when you are done, open the
scheduler, and drag the job to the desktop.

Do this:
- Open the Task Scheduler.
- Open the backup task you created.
- Use Ctrl+C to copy the whole command line.
- Click Start / Run / cmd {OK}
- Do this:
Press Alt+Space bar
Tap the letter E
Tap the letter P
Press the Enter key
- Report exactly what you see
- Paste the backup command line into your reply

Pegasus,

This is what I get when I do that:
C:\WINNT\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and
Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
NT\NTBackup\data\Backup.bks" /a /d "Set created 10/28/2005 at 7:54 AM" /v:no
/r:no /rs:no /hc:off /m incremental /j "Backup" /l:s /f
"\\server1\BACKUPS\Brian_BU.bkf"

Fine, that's the command line. Now tell us what happens
when you press the Enter key.

Sorry should have been more detailed:
copy the line in the schedules job into a file called anything.bat on your
desktop.
