Windows Server 2008 R2–Backup and restore printers

Here is a simple command line that can be saved as a scheduled task that can be used to backup all of your printer settings in Windows Server 2008 R2:

CD %WINDIR%System32SpoolTools Printbrm.exe -s <sourcecomputername> -b -f <filename>.printerExport

To restore the settings to another server run the following command:

Printbrm -s <destinationcomputername> -r -f <filename>.printerExport
