How could you get it installed and working correctly without knowing how to back something up? Is it a domain controller? Web Server? File server? It isn't SBS 2003 is it?

I received a free copy of the Enterprise version of Server 2003 through my school. At my house, I have two computers I want to be able to have the NOS automatically backup. I am still learning how to use this OS, because it has more features than I'm used to with regular Windows OS.

Start, run, ntbackup.exe

I do NOT want to start anything or get you pissed off, but this is like the 3 or 4 post in which you started by:
You're kidding right? Please tell me you are kidding...Please??

Remember that everyone has differing levels of business and technical knowledge. Some people are very new to the business and are here to learn more, others are very experienced have been operating 10 years. Do not flame a user for not knowing a certain topic, they are here to learn.

There is only so much someone can learn by reading "book smarts" If could all learn just from reading we would not need Technibble.

Did you learn everything you needed to know from a book or class when you were an ASE mechanic? Or did you ever ask a more experienced mechanic, hey I read up on this procedure but do you know an easier way? id they tell you, You're kidding right, go back and do some more research.

Like I said AGC, I do NOT want to start anything or get banned, or ignored. You have a LOT of experience to give and I for one value your post's as I do with several other members here and I have learned a lot in the time I have been here.

To be fair to ACG, lward1 he posted that over 2 weeks ago, before the new rules were decided upon. I think everyone's approach to posting has changed in the intervening period. Perhaps you should have checked the date?

Your right seedubya, I should have, I appologize for not checking the date first.
