Make a batch file with ".cmd" or ".bat" file and cut paste the following into the batch file with appropriate obvious changes. SQLMAINT is a Sql Server command line utility, which you could make use for UR purpose

"C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3\MSSQL\Binn\SQLMAINT -S "Servername" -U "DBusername" -P "passowrd" -D "Databasename" -BkUpMedia DISK -DelBkUps 2weeks -BkUpDB "Drive:\BackupFilePath""
