Windows Server 2008: Perform System Backup

Command line: Wbadmin start systemstatebackup
Creates a system state backup of the local computer and stores it on the location specified.

To perform a system state backup with this subcommand, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate permissions. In addition, you must run wbadmin from an elevated command prompt. (To open an elevated command prompt, click Start, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.)

Syntax
wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:<VolumeName> [-quiet]

Parameter Description
-backupTarget: Specifies the location where you want to store the backup. The storage location requires a drive letter or a GUID-based volume of the format of this example: \\?\Volume{92f3db11-69fb-11db-89db-806e6f6e6963}.A system state backup to a shared network folder is not supported.

-quiet: Runs the subcommand with no prompts to the user.

Examples: To create a system state backup and store it on volume f, type: wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backupTarget:f:
