SPBackup 1.2 released on Codeplex

My project to make a complete backup of SharePoint with Windows Powershell (mostly used on WSS) just got support for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. Also the deletion of old backups has been changed.

    This is a great script! Just what I was looking for! Shouldn\’t the InetPub folder be included also?

      Yes if possible can the code include the option to backup the inetpub as well. Love the script, everything I wanted.

        yes, you can change the script to include this directory, but SharePoint prepopulates these directories from the SQL server. -so it shouldn’t be neccesary actually, especially not in a full server restore
