i don't believe there is a way to verify the backup using the tool other than by restoring it on a computer which isn't very helpful. Also remeber that when using ntbackup you would have to re-installwindows before you could restore the backup which is time consuming. The better bet is to use an imaging program. Most can verify the back up as part of the image creation. Also you can browse the image without having to restore it and re-install directly to a blank machine without need for the OS. There are several free alternatives that BC members have used in the past. I use Acronis which while it isn't free is a great program.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
