  • Hey David,

    There is still wbadmin.exe for backup, dir /s for search, no command line option for restore, except for launching the System Restore GUI - rstrui.exe.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Gary

  • David,

    I suggest you take a look at the new feature for local backups called File History.  You can access File History from the desktop Control Panel.

    Rstrui doesn't create a restore point automatically.

    What about automatically do a backup every night?

    You can use wbadmin to create backup jobs that can be scheduled as you'd
    like them to be scheduled.

  • I will look at wbadmin.exe. But wbadmin is a 7 year product.

    thanks
