You CAN change the default backup directory using SSMS very easily:-

- From Object Explorer, right-click on the server and choose Facets.
- In the Facet dropdown, choose Server Settings.
- Change the BackupDirectory to your chosen folder.

No server restart is necessary. You can verify the change by checking the registry key.

James is correct in SSMS 2008 you can change in it.

So unless stated clearly in the question its not SQL 2008 its not valid imho

Oh dear. I had no idea about that. I'd always used the registry in the past as that was the only way I could find to do it, and BOL seemed to back me up.

I'm not sure if anything can be done to fix the question, but in the meantime I can only apologise for the incorrect answer and explanation.
