This is one of my personal favourites,
It's a combination of NTBackup (For Active Directory, System State and Registry etc) Robocopy (For file shares) and SendEmail (for confirmation the backup worked).
All instructions come with my script; it's ideally suited for companies with USB external drives although it could be customised for tape drives or external FTP drives.
I wrote it for a few of my smaller clients and it seems to do the job quite well; it also backs up Exchange by stopping the services and copying the Priv1 + Pub1 databases, this provides easy restore access in the event of a disaster. Simply rebuild the server and then remount the Exchange databases and voila.
I'd be interested in people's opinion's on this...
