NT Backups: Configuring File Level Backups

Click on Start -> Run…

At the prompt, type in “ntbackup” and press OK.

Click “Next” on the initial window.

Choose “Back up files and settings“, click “Next“.

Select “Let me choose what to back up“, click “Next“.

Select which files and folders you would like to back up by placing a check mark in the box next to them. Once done, click “Next“.

Select a location to back up the files to.

Name the backup set, this can be any name of your choosing, and click “Next“.

Click “Advanced“.

In the drop-down menu under “Select the type of backup“, choose “Daily“, and click “Next“.

Click “Next” once you have selected how you want your backup sets to function.

Click on “Later“, and then click on “Set Schedule“.

Once your desired time is set, click “OK“.

Windows will then prompt you for the user under which to run the backup job. Enter your “ServerAdmin” credentials for the server, and click OK. The backups will then run at the scheduled time. Please note that the NTBackup software does not use compression, and any files which are backed up will retain their full size on the server.

If you need any assistance with this process, or encounter any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact our Technical Support Department.
