  • Question

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

    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, and

    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.
