Hi, have added the following commands at the end of my batch script
Rem Store backup Script
net use e: /d


rem Store - 001
ping 10.10.10.2
net use e: \\10.10.10.2\2007 /user:admin password
f:
copy *.* d:\storedata\001\ /y


net use e: /d /y
date /t >>d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
time /t >>d:\storedata\backuplog.txt

end

Would it be possible to log how much data has copied or to log the size of folder after it has been copied? (d:\storedata\001)

If you just want the total of the files then do

dir D:\storedata\001 /s | find "Dir(s)" >>d:\storedata\backuplog.txt

Depends upon your needs but easy enough to add a bit more logging if you want with some echo statements etc:

Steve

@echo off
Rem Store backup Script
echo %date% %time% Backup started >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
echo ... %date% %time% Removing old drive mapping  >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
net use e: /d  >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt 2>>&1
ping 10.10.10.2
echo ... %date% %time% Mapping drive >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
net use e: \\10.10.10.2\2007 /user:admin password  >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt 2>>&1
f:
echo ... %date% %time% Starting copy >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
copy *.* d:\storedata\001\ /y  >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt 2>>&1
net use e: /d /y
dir D:\storedata\001 /s | find "Dir(s)" >>d:\storedata\backuplog.txt
echo %date% %time% Backup completed >> d:\storedata\backuplog.txt

To make it look less busy add

set log=d:\storedata\backuplog.txt

at the beginning and replace all the d:\storedata\backuplog.txt entries with %log%
