Windws Server backup on Windows Server 2008 R2 crashing

by Robi 8. December 2010 12:19

So I wanted to change backup location of my Windows Server backups and everytime I wanted to remove or change backups the MMC was crashing.

So I wanted to do it in Windows PowerShell and found out, that by default Windows Powershell does not have module to manage Windows backups.

What you need to do is to add snapin for Windows Backup by typing:

Add-PSSnapin windows.serverbackup

Then you get all the commands that you can find here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee706683.aspx.

So, to completely remove backups from Windows Server Backups, just type:

Remove-WBPolicy -All

and confirm it with: y.

Now, I can configure new backup set inside Windows Server backup MMC.

voilà
