Backup windows endpoint instantly

Please use below script to backup windows operating system instantly.

Note: Backup should not be done in system volume. Please modify target volume (Default ‘E’) in the script for custom windows volume.

import os;
import ctypes

class disable_file_system_redirection:
    _disable = ctypes.windll.kernel32.Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection
    _revert = ctypes.windll.kernel32.Wow64RevertWow64FsRedirection
    def __enter__(self):
        self.old_value = ctypes.c_long()
        self.success = self._disable(ctypes.byref(self.old_value))
    def __exit__(self, type, value, traceback):
        if self.success:

with disable_file_system_redirection():
    backup=os.popen('wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:E:  -allCritical -quiet').read();

Sample output would be,

I’m using this script but having an issue with the it actually capturing the entire output of the backup process. Is there a way to adjust it so it will capture the full output (I’m guessing the maximum size of the ‘backup’ variable is being exceeded)?

Hi @Scott75

This script capturing full output. Seems like there is a problem printing complete output. I will check and update the status as soon as possible.
