Also, if you are on Windows 2000 (and I assume XP) NTBackup now supports
saving to a file. I have all my PCs automatically backup between 11PM and
5AM to a backup server using W2K scheduling and NTBackup.

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
Map a drive on the PC to the 400 like  \\my400\backups\pcfiles

Then you can either use a zip utility like PKzip, WinZip and say the you
want to store the zipped file in \my400\pcfiles.  Of course, my400 in the
system name of your 400.  Also a better method would be to use Backupexec,
Backup MyPC software from Viratas and say that you want to back up to a
file, like a SAVF, and the file would be G:\backups\pcfiles.  This would
give you a record of what was saved plus you have an automated method of
doing it unattended.
