    You can download the client from here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...opyclient.mspx

    It's alos available in windows\system32 directory somewhere (Cant remember the full location)

    You should be able to use a GPO to install the .msi file onto all XP / 2003 (SP3) or above machines.

    This should help you change the schedule:

        Sorry - I was up early

        Create / ammend a GPO and expand Computer Configurations - Software Settings and then select software installation.

        Right click and select new software and then browse to a windw2003 srv to the required MSI file:

        \\<windows2003srv>\c$\WINDOWS\system32\clients\ twclient\x86\twcli32.msi

        Select the deployment state as assigned (As you dont need to make any changes) and then select what group you want to apply it to i.e. Authenticate users etc

        Hope this helps

          1 1 was a racehorse.
          2 2 was 1 2.
          1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
          2 2 1 1 2

              UPDATE - You'll need to copy the .MSI to a network share where all users have access to first

                ok,
                the deployment i can understand...
                about scheduling... microsoft don't have good info there.
                i need it to backup data 3 times daily from 8:00 to 17:00
                sounds easy. but grrrrrr why they did that so hard?
                not user friendly gui
                confusing

                      i see.
                      to set 3 points separately.
                      i need to go in another direction...
                      to do it all at once. in on "shot".
                      to set it to daily not weekly...
