How can I preset backup utility so I don't have to choose what to backup to
what location every single time? I want to be able to just open backup
utility & press start without having to choose the data & the location to
store the data.

you want.. You could have several different ones. One for a full
backup, one to backup user data etc.

Is this a new question? Please start a new thread.

It should be under "Accessories" in the start menu. If not, then install it
through Add/Remove programs - Windows Components.

I don't think it's installed by default.

Hi,

I know that you can create a bks file after you select the files that
you want to backup and use it inside a .bat file with this information.You
can use the task scheduler to run your bat files or run the .bat files. Look
at this page
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/window...
/en-us/ntbackup_command.mspx

To do a test try this command: ntbackup backup "@C:\swd.bks" /J "backup job
number 1" /F "C:\backup.bkf"

"@C:\swd.bks" => file name saved with the information about the files that
you will backup. to edit this file, after the creation, look at:
