    I have been trying to get the automatic back-up to work on version 11 and have now sorted it...with help.

    I am running this on Windows 7 Pro (64-bit).

    > Use the following to create a batch file:

    @echo off
    echo Running Configuration Backup...
    "C:\Program Files\3CX PhoneSystem\Bin\3CXBackup.exe" hidden backup "(Specify the path here that you want to save to)\config_backup.zip" /exit

    echo Running Data Backup...
    "C:\Program Files\3CX PhoneSystem\Bin\3CXBackup.exe" hidden backup "(Specify the path here that you want to save to)\full_backup.zip" /callrecordings /voicemails /voiceprompts /callhist /exit

    > Save that file to the C:\ drive
    > Give administrator rights to the 3CX Backup and Restore Utility
    > Open Windows Task Scheduler
    > Create a new file by right clicking on the Task Scheduler Library and name it 3CX
    > Create a new task in here and use the batch file that you saved to the C:\ drive.
    > Set the task to run as often or as little as required.

    This will now create a full backup (VM ect..) and a config backup which is your base config.

    Hope this helps as I had to spend a bit of time on it getting it right.
