Backing up and restoring a file
Posted on 2004-10-13
I am trying find some code to do a simple backup and resotore of a Data.ini file, In short; I have a Data.txt file in a directory called Support Files that I access with Application.StartupPath() I need a button to make a copy of the Data.txt file in the Support Files directory and place the copy of the file in a directory Support Files\Backups but have it renamed to a format of the name "Data" plus the date it was saved on and the .txt extension.
If for some reason the user messes up the main Data.txt file in the Support Files directory I also need a button to allow them to open the Support Files\Backups directory and select the file they want to replace the bad Data.txt file with. It will then overwrite the Data.txt file in the Support Files directory with the file from the Support Files\Backups directory and leave the backup copy in the Support Files\Backups directory too.
