    Hi all,

    Windows 2000 Advanced Server.

    I have a daily backup scheduled using NT backup to run at 5:00 every
    day. Occasionally this fails due to a dodgy tape or some other minor
    problem and I need to go back and run the job again.

    What is the easiest way of doing this? I could create a new temp job
    but the file/folder selection list for this cluster is pretty large
    and there's always a chance of missing something. I guess what I'm
    saying is how do I get "run now" functionality for a scheduled backup
    whose start date/time is in the past?

    Dave.
