Windows has a built in image backup (disk image)(system image) tool. How can I initiate it to take a backup to a certain location automatically with task scheduler? If I could create a bat file then I could run it with scheduler but such code exceeds my windows coding skills. Can you help me? Thanks.

    If you mean the windows backup tool, you can schedule directly from that program, which I believe uses a scheduled task. – LPChip Feb 22 '17 at 13:58

Assuming you mean the windows backup tool which you can get to from the Control Panel > Backup and Restore (Windows 7)

You can set a schedule by choosing Set up Backup.

Once you get to the Review your backup settings screen, you can change the schedule, which by default is set every sunday at 19:00.
