Creating a script to upload to Amazon Glacier

I want to create a script that connects to Amazon Glacier and uploads the daily backups. I have found a peice of software called fastglacier which has a console uploader which seems to work.

But I have no way of selecting only files to upload that were created that day.

The command I had working but will do all files regardless is:

glacier-put my-account c:\backup\*.* eu-west-1 my-vault

But the local-file parameter is allowing wildcards, so can you create a filter that just uploads today's files? Is that what you seek? Or do you need a script that finds the files that were created 'today' and then upload then using fastglacier?

Yes just files from today I did state in my post that the one I have does all "files regardless"

Can you post a sample of what the file names look like? What Windows OS are you uploading from?

this works in windows 2008 or windows vista/7

set PATH=%PATH%;<path-to-glacier-exe>
cd <path-to-backup>
forfiles /D 0 /C "glacier-put my-account @file eu-west-1 my-vault"

Open in new window
