JSI Tip 4569. How do I automatically print the backupxx.log of my scheduled backup?

If you use a command line backup, add:

Call PrtBkLog \\Server\Printer

immediately after the Ntbackup command.

PrtBkLog.bat contains:

@echo off
if \{%1\}==\{\} @echo Syntax PrintDevice (\\Server\Printer)
set device=%1
set prt=N
for /f "Tokens=*" %%i in ('dir /o-d /b "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\backup*.log"') do call :print %%i
goto :EOF
if not "%prt%" EQU "N" goto :EOF
set prt=Y
print /D:%device% "%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\%1"
