Hello, Could someone help me understanding what I'm doing wrong with 2k8 r2 backups ? I'm trying to backup a folder's content into a destination located to an external USB drive. Folder to backup : e:\data Target folder : g:\target (where target will be the date in yyyyMMdd format) If I start powershell and type : wbadmin -backupTarget:"g:\target" -include:"e:\data" then I end getting an error message complaining (I translate from french, so sorry for errors) that : "The specified backup location cannot be found or is not a valid backup location" But, If I type : wbadmin -backupTarget:"g:" -include:"e:\data" then, it works fine - but, then, I cannot have distinct backups for each day. I browsed MS boards and technets, but couldn't find any helpful information on this. And google was anything but my friend either. Any idea about what I'm doing wrong ? Many thanks, J.-L.
