Hi,

I am trying to create a batchfile that will copy a folder and its complete files and subdirectories. and then those files must be archived using winrar to a specific location. The scenario is as given below.

SOURCE: \\192.168.0.3\d$\Ebiz
where Ebiz is the folder that i am trying to archive.

DESTINATION: \\192.168.0.2\d$\EBIZ_BKP\%CURRENT DATE%
where current date must be the file name

Is it possible? Please help.

Thank You

I have tried previously in one of my VB 6.0 application, the WinRAR command utility
Source - http://forums.techguy.org/all-other-software/704527-solved-winrar-command-line-question.html

What about this command ?
"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\rar.exe" a -m5 -ed -pTest \\192.168.0.3\d$\Ebiz \192.168.0.2\d$\EBIZ_BKP\

Open in new window

I think, enclose with double-quotes is correct
"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\rar.exe" a -m5 -ed -pTest "\\192.168.0.3\d$\Ebiz" "\192.168.0.2\d$\EBIZ_BKP\"

Open in new window

Make sure you have write permission to the network folder

Updated for file name with current date
"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\rar.exe" a -m5 -ed -ag[dd.MM.yyyy] -pTest "\\192.168.0.3\d$\Ebiz" "\192.168.0.2\d$\EBIZ_BKP\"

Open in new window


I believe, if it not working, with some modifications you could find the solution

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Also make sure to give correct location of WinRAR installation folder in the command.

Oops!

In the command to create archieve, a password was set (see -pTest   means a password is set as 'Test' )
If you don't want password, modify command by remove that session
"C:\Program Files\WinRAR\rar.exe" a -m5 -ed -ag[dd.MM.yyyy] "\\192.168.0.3\d$\Ebiz" "\192.168.0.2\d$\EBIZ_BKP\"

Open in new window


Right now, if you extract your current archieve, provide -pTest to your extract command as well - becase that password is set to archive
Add -pTest to your archieve command line

I am sure, this will solve this issue.
