I'm thinking about going with Daemon Tools to make an iso file. They tell me that with this, I can check which files to add to the iso file and good to go. Any other suggestions?
You'll note that for Backup, the Task Scheduler has some command line with only one parm? My guess is that parm simply says "look at all the registry settings pertaining to the selectable file/folder tree in the Backup applet".
With that said, I haven't experimented with it, but I believe using the command line WBADMIN command, you can include and exclude folders as part of a regular backup (which I assume could also include a system image if the -allcritical option was specified).
You didn't say anything about automating a restore of files/folders. That doesn't make sense.
