I know this is an elementary question, but I haven't been able to figure out how to get the backup to write to a file on another machine. My backup to a local disk protects me from stuipd human errors, but obviously if there's a hardware problem on the machine I'll be in bad shape. Right now I copy the backup file manually. There has to be a better way. I am running SQL Server 7 with the latest service packs."
