Windows 7: Schedule multiple backup jobs?

Schedule multiple backup jobs?

As per the title, I'd like to schedule multiple backup jobs; I don't see how to do this with Windows 7's built-in backup utility.

I have copied NTBACKUP and it's two associated .dll's from an XP box to my Windows 7 system; ntbackup runs if activated manually but scheduled tasks don't run.

Advice on how to schedule multiple backup jobs? Thank you.

You could try using the Task Scheduller, have a look at the tutorial

Task Scheduler - Create New Task

and see if it will do what you require.

Thanks, Orbital Shark. That looks like it could work. I'll check it when I get home.

Hi Orbital Shark, I had two similar questions, and you answered one of them. My second question would be: Can I also set up different back up options with the different scedules? Thanks in advance, Laci.
