Use powershell to set up Windows 10 Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Update: I actually found this post where Christian Grue asks the same question:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/4b1ec067-2479-4f36-9c20-dfecb0ed2a6b/windows-10-backup-with-powershell

    That was in 2017. Is this still the case in 2020?

    Original Post:

    I've found a number of articles on how to make a Powershell backup script, such as

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/53074.file-backup-with-powershell.aspx, and

    https://medium.com/@pablo127/how-do-i-make-quick-automatic-backup-with-using-powershell-9fa8de3f1784.

    However, these scripts include the actual backup routine. I'm not against this approach, but before I choose it, I was wondering if the Powershell API is capable of configuring the built-in Windows 10 Backup utility directly?

    Here's my scenario, if that clarifies my project: We have a number of deployed systems on customer premises, and I need to retroactively configure backups of our application's data folder to a network share. These systems are nearly identical, and the only wildcard is the destination network share and its credentials.
