How do you set up task manager (Win98se) to run MSBACKUP? I have several jobs saved in msbackup, but when I try to run it in task manager I just get the prompt to select a job. I guess there are commands I must use after MSBACKUP.EXE for it to run by it's self. Can someone help me on this please.

accordin to MS....backup.exe is not capable of doing an unatended backup...the only CLI switches that i've found for it involve the display of the program (black and white, vga mode, etc...)

I just want to back up certain files. Guess I can use the copy command in a bat file. I was hoping to use backup as it compacts the files. I have winzip, maybe I can use it as part of a bat file.

winzip does have a command line tool with it...don't remember where it is...but there is one to DL...you could use a batch to zip the files...then xcopy them

Looks like the comand line feature for winzip is for winzip pro, not the standard winzip. Anyone know of a backup software program that will back up to hard drive and not to external hardware. That may cost less then winzip pro.
