Wondering how to create a multiple backup for a windows 2011 SBS using the windows backup solution. To create a multiple backup solution you need some scripting and the use of taskmanager in Windows 2011 SBS or Windows 2008 Server R2.
You need to open Notepad and configure information like below.
@echo off :: <filename>.cmd :: Backup of my supersystem using WBADMIN.EXE :: Made by .... yourname .... rem backup share UNC set backupshare=\\<networkdevice>\<backupshare>\<foldername> rem files and folders to include set include=< your partitions like d:, e: > rem define date time variables for building the folder name set m=%date:~6,2% set d=%date:~3,2% set y=%date:~9,4% rem set h=%time:~0,2% rem set min=%time:~3,2% rem set sec=%time:~6,2% rem defining a new folder like \\<networkdevice>\<backupshare>\<foldername>\<date> set newfolder=%backupshare%\%computername%\%d%%m%%y% echo Creating %newfolder% mkdir %newfolder% rem run the backup echo Backing up %include% to %newfolder% wbadmin START BACKUP -backuptarget:%newfolder% -include:%include% -allCritical -vssFull -quiet
Save the file to a <filename>.cmd in a folder that is easily to find back. Test the script via the Command line [ CMD] with administrative rights [ Run as administrator]
If the script run fine you can use the windows taskmanager to run the script daily.
