    Hi,

    I was trying to use Windows 2000 backup to backup the Exchange mailboxes
    etc, but ran into some problems. These problems are from two different
    computers:

    Computer A

    The backup program worked well if I manually launched it, but if I had it
    scheduled to run it would open the backup screen but would not load the
    template that I had created and saved.

    Computer B

    The backup program would not work at all and when I tried to launch it from
    the command prompt with the following text:

    ntbackup /?

    it would open the backup program, launch the help file and then close the
    backup program.

    I simply tried to launch it at he command prompt as: ntbackup and nothing
    would happen.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks
    Steve

  2. I would do this for starters:
    - Examine the Event Logger
    - Run sfc.exe (System File Checker)
