Starting an Endpoint backup from command line in Windows 10

Hello everyone,

I am trying to start an incremental backup with Endpoint from the command line.
It seems to work fine with Windows 7, but on Windows 10, using the exact same command doesn't start a backup.
For clarification, the exact command I'm using is: C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.Endpoint.Manager.exe /backup
I have ensured that a full backup has been performed before this.
Passing the command through a script, it seems that it is exiting with a code of -1, meaning the backup had an error or failed to start.
I was just wondering, is there any difference in the commands I should be using for Windows 7 and Windows to to start a backup from the command line?

Thanks
harley

I found the issue while this topic was pending approval. I was on an older version of Veeam Endpoint (1.1.0), and needed to be on 1.1.2 or higher.

Hi,
needed to be on 1.1.2 or higher.

I recommend using the latest 1.5 version since it contains several new features and code improvements. Cheers!
