>After precious advice from this group, I am currently using a batch file full of the following lines, to create backups of the main server at work.

From xcopy /?
Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string
should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For
example, specifying a string like \obj\ or .obj will exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
.obj extension respectively.

Do you want to backup drive c: in its entirety? XXCLONE could help there.
