As a System administrator, keeping disk images for many computers current can
be quite time consuming.
Due to Drive Snapshot's easy command line interface, this can be done much
Using RLOGIN/RCONSOLE from the Windows NT Resource pack, or the ingenious
utility from Sysinternals,
you can easily automate this process, or control it from your own working place.
Example for PSEXEC:
C::\>PSEXEC \\userComputer -u administrator -p
-c -f -h c:\Programme\snapshot\Snapshot.exe C: \\Server\Backup\user\C-drive.SNA
login to the computer 'Usercomputer' as an administrator (required); copy Snapshot.exe to the other computer, and start a backup of the C:-drive to some space on your \\Server.
Please see PSEXEC documentation for more details.
Note: when backing up a Vista or Windows 7 computer, please use
-h If the target system is Vista or higher, has the process
run with the account's elevated token, if available.
Otherwise you will get a UAC (User Account Control) prompt that no one is able to answer.
