  • As you know:

    Windows Server Backup (WSB) is the built-in backup solution for Windows Server 2008 that replaces the venerable NT Backup from Windows Server 2003 and before.  WSB protects the files and the server os/application binaries within itself as a single-server solution.  To consolidate protection across multiple servers or applications like SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint or Hyper-V, then Microsoft would recommend looking at System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM).

    For more information regarding creating Windows Server Backup related scheduled tasks, please refer to the following article:
