Backup batch scripting
Posted on 2008-02-11
I am trying to create a batch file that will backup my documents folder when ran. I will have many files that didnt change however so I dont see the need to back these up and due to the size of some of them this will cause it to take a long time. I want to know if theres some way to check if the file has changed before it backs it up.
Heres what I have so far that backs everything up:
xcopy /i /y /e "Location on local pc*.*" "Server location"
This works great, but takes forever due to the amount of files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
