Thanks, Brad. Your comment and google led me to find ntbackup. It is not
terribly easy to find, but I did eventually find it.
To the list: I apologize for the Windows questions, but this list has some of
the most knowledgeable admins of any source I know. I try to avoid Windows as
much as possible, but I have to do it sometimes.
