Hello Jefferson,

to answer your question:

a) PostgreSQL 8.0 was End-Of-Lived in 2007. You should start your
sales-pitch of updating to something more recent, as in PostgreSQL 8.4 or

b) to setup an automatic backup on Windows at a client side with no local
DBA (or similiar qualified personel), your success will be better when using
pg_dump and "planned tasks".   (assuming XP)

In a nutshell:

create .cmd files with
pg_dump -U <username> --format=C <databasename> > dumpfilename.dmp

schedule those .cmd files to run BEFORE any file based backup of the
dumpfilename.dmp files happens

(as an exercise: create a daily different dumpfilename via script, run the
same .cmd every day)

best wishes,
