Windows 7: Backup and Restore Administrator Priviledges

Backup and Restore Administrator Priviledges

We have had problems with our staff loading unauthorized software on their machines. Because of this we have revoked local admin rights from most staff. I have a staff person how needs to run the backup and restore software. Is there a way to enable the use of backup and restore without giving the person administrator rights for everything else? Security Policy, registry, something??

Thanks,
I went into applocker and created a executable rule to "allow" the user for sdclt.exe in the system32 folder. I even manually added full security for that person to sdclt.exe. Still get the You must be an administrator to perform this task.

The version of windows is Windows 7 Professional

See if any of this helps,

How do I allow access to a program to a standard user in Windows 7 where UAC pops up?
