I want to write a simple backup batch file to backup to a USB drive amongst other things.
I can list the volume using diskpart /s diskscript.txt where diskscript.txt has "list volume" in it and then search for the diskname;
diskpart /s diskscript.txt | find "BACKUP"
I now need to extract the disk volume from the string and assign it to a variable.
Volume 4 F BACKUP FAT32 Removeable 1934 MB
I don't want to hard code the drive letter in the script as it may change. If awk was available as standard I'd be ok :-).
Is there a MSDOS alternative?
O/S is Windows XP Home/Professional.
I will up the points for a quick response... hell I may even do it anyway! :-)
