Parse the Backup Log

The Windows Backup utility produces a nice log of the files it backs up that comes in handy when restoring - lets you zero in on which day a given file was backed up.

So it stands to reason that importing that log into Access would be worthwhile. Has anyone seen a VBScript or WSH script that would parse the file out to a comma delimited (or perhaps something DTS could handle?

If the log file is in .txt format this shouldn't be to much of a problem to accomplish. You may want to post this question the the VB room as well. Good Luck

that was my thought too....i'm just trolling for 'I already thought of that and here's the script I'm using.' If anyone points me to a working script I'd be happy to boost the points.

I'll let this linger the rest of the weekend in case someone's already dealt with the issue.

thankx
