Query to backup all databases

There are other easy ways to take backup, but this is just one of the other ways.

DECLARE @name VARCHAR(50) -- database name 
DECLARE @path VARCHAR(256) -- path for backup files 
DECLARE @fileName VARCHAR(256) -- filename for backup 
DECLARE @fileDate VARCHAR(20) -- used for file name
SET @path = 'e:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\backup-CR30581-20100507' 

SELECT @fileDate = CONVERT(VARCHAR(20),GETDATE(),112)

DECLARE db_cursor CURSOR FOR 
SELECT name
FROM master.dbo.sysdatabases
--WHERE name NOT IN ('master','model','msdb','tempdb') 
OPEN db_cursor  
FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @name  
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0  
BEGIN  
       SET @fileName = @path + @name + '_' + @fileDate + '.BAK' 
       BACKUP DATABASE @name TO DISK = @fileName 
       FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @name  
END  
CLOSE db_cursor  
DEALLOCATE db_cursor
--master.xp_fixeddrives
