How to Use
Download batbackup.bat and then right-click on the file and click "Edit". Edit the following options in the file:
:: SET BACKUP DRIVE AND FOLDER set drive=F: set folder=Cool Batch Backup :: SET FOLDERS TO BACKUP set folder=%userprofile%\Favorites set folder=%userprofile%\Desktop set folder=%userprofile%\Documents set folder=%userprofile%\Music set folder=%userprofile%\Pictures :: SET HOW OFTEN TO BACKUP IN MINUTES set minutes=30
Save the file and then right-click on the file and click "Run as administrator". The script will create all the folders for you on the backup drive and create a shortcut on the desktop to the log files. The script will ask you how many versions of your backup files you would like to have:
1 = Just 1 version of the backup
You may customize other options in the bactch script. If you are knowledgeable in batch programming or in command prompt commands you can edit many options such as the backup command. Currently it is using xcopy with paramaters to only copy newer files by date than the files already copied (\d switch).
2/18/2020 - Version 1.1 - Some versions of Windows 10 were not able to correctly open the .vbs file from Task Scheduler and Task Scheduler was having error "The operation was canceled by the user." Windows 10 should know to use wscript.exe but it doesn't. So now the script creates the task with "wscript.exe '%programfolder%\batbackup.vbs'" for better Windows 10 support.
