Thank you for your response.
> Why not just use the built in backup wizard?
Consistency with existing machines, procedures, and documentation.
create folders on a backup computer, named by user, source of files and
date and time
use zip to compress files
copy the compressed files to the named folder
generate a report of errors, if any
After all the files have been copied to the backup compter the tape unit
copies the main folder to tape.

No viruses, worms, ever,... in the four client's offices, where we use these
scripts. We have been using win 98 and 2k and xp, no problems. And now
vista, the most secure of all without UAC, is the most annoying because of
I cannot help them if I also have to protect them from themselves in any
other way that to instruct them what to do, and to some extent, what not to
do. And the UAC, which appears to be mostly to stop them from doing that
which they already do not do, interferes with me helping them. It only adds
costs for us, no benefits.
This must be because we are unaware of such benefits. But we have asked many
questions. Read many articles. And played with vista for many months.
And we have yet to find a reason for having to click OK on 4 dialogs to add
a new folder and name it correctly. What are we missing?
