    Hi

    I previously used PQ Drive Image Pro with scripting but ditched it as soon as Symantec took over (might ditch Veritas BE too!...Symantec makes most other IT companies look helpful and responsive - which is saying something !).

    Therefore I purchased TI v9.0 which works great manually but I cannot find a way to script/command line it - can this be done ?


    Thanks


    Tom

    The command line interface is only available on the Corporate versions - not on ATI9 which is a consumer version.:cool:

    Your only options are to run commands "around" the backup, either by using TI's before/after backup command feature, or by executing a TI script (.tis file) from within your script.

    I have been able to get a lot of flexibility using the second approach; I rename backups, manage the number of incrementals I keep, choose a destination drive according to whether my external USB is there or not, etc.
