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. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: Larryt222@aol.com [mailto:Larryt222@aol.com] Sent: Friday, January 25, 2002 16:17 To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Automated backup to the IFS -- [ 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.
