I use this command line to backup my files:

start /Min /WAIT %WINDIR%\system32\NTBACKUP.EXE backup "\\mypc\myfolder"
/v:no /r:no /rs:no /hc:blush:n /m normal /l:s /p "4 mm DDS" /um

I have the next trouble: when I insert a new 4 mm DDS, ntbackup don´t
recognize the format. Then, ntbackup stop and don´t continue. If I make the
backup in interactive mode, i can prepare the DDS and make the backup.

Are there any parameter in ntbackup to prepare the DDS format without any
prompt to the user?

Thanks

You have to nominate a folder selection file, that is a file that
lists all the folders you wish to back up. Your command does
not nominate such a selection file.

The easiest way to get a sample command is to use the wizzard
to schedule a backup some time in the future. You can then take
the command line from the Task Scheduler, place it into a batch
file and modify it to suit your exact requirements.

This command work perfectly. The only problem is with new tapes that are not
formated. If I use old tapes, work perfectrly, if i use a new tape with no
format, wrong.
