    What do you mean by "set your volume"?

Ntbackup is so limited.  I hope NT5.0 comes out soon with a better one!
*cough*  *choke*  soon??  *hack* *spit*

Personally, I like ARCserve.  You can do whatever you like (almost) and
with the exchange agent, backup the exchange database.  No need to worry
about those ugly AT scripts.

1. NTbackup question

Hi all,

Just wondering - if a user accesses email etc. during a backup session, does it
corrupt the backup?

I have been having backup issues - backup works fine for a few days, then get
errors (backup of log files corrupt, will not restore...).  Then the next day
the backup works fine.

I have even run two backups at night (like 2am and 4am) and have the first one
come up corrupt - but the second one was fine.

Any help appreciated,
Rob
