I am trying to figure out how to manually copy the Windows Server 2008 backup partition to a Samba share. The purpose is to consolidate several machines worth of backup data into one location for writing to a tape drive.
I have an automated task which creates the daily backup, however I can't specify the location for the backup as the Samba share, because Samba doesn't allow System users access.
Thus, my idea is create a shell script which is invoked as an automated Task Schedule and performs the copy as a non-System user.
However, I can't figure out how to access the hidden data partition of the backup. I see in the Backup Entry the partition name, but can't figure out how to access it.
[edit: I have not created this partition, nor chosen it. It is the default location which Windows Server Backup writes to.]
