Windows 7: WBADMIN - command line parameters

WBADMIN - command line parameters

Hi,

WBADMIN command line parameters provides a possibility to create batch files running advanced, automated backup.

But, I need a scheduled task for backup of the entire system image. It seems this is not possible, and that the only way to create a system image backup is by using the GUI?

Anyone?

/Per

What I'm looking for i the Windows 7 equivalent to the Windows Server 2008 "wbadmin start systemstatebackup" command line parameter..

Thanks..

But this WBADMIN commands only apply to Windows Server 2008, not Windows 7. You can actually run the commands in Windows 7, but you will get a message that its not supported in this Windows Version..

I don't have any backups but the command itself works okay.
