Awesome! That is EXACTLY what I was hoping to find! It's nice that they're available in C++/Delphi form, but I only have Delphi so ... :-)

Thanks a ton, Paul!

You can pick up and/or from

These contain routines for backup/restore using the Services API. They
return boolean succes/failure as reported by the API. In case of
failure, the error message(s) can be returned too and presented to the
user (which I understand you don't want) or scanned for errcodes etc.

Source code (C++) is included so you can adapt them if you like.
Consult the API Reference if you want to introduce more functionality.
