That is what SQL Studio uses in the background to do all the backup and restore work (and well everything else in Studio). I've been using it for a very long time (since SQLDMO).

It is probably more advanced than what you are ready for, but I figured I should mention it in case you are delving into full backup and restore management from C#.
