Perhaps not so much a request for someone to write a program, as just a query for best advice.
I have several folders that I'd like to back up to a USB flash drive. Before bed at night I'd like to double-click on a desktop shortcut and have the assignment performed totally and flawlessly.
One way to accomplish the task would be a batch file, with copy commands for each folder.
xcopy c:\images\*.* /c /d /q /r /s /v /y f:\images
xcopy c:\data\*.* /c /d /s /q /r /v /y f:\data
etc.No muss, no fuss
How can this process be improved upon?
For instance, specialized software that:
-- checks for changed files, and only copies those needed?
-- archives/compresses everything to save flash drive space?
-- pops up a final window/report showing that all copied successfully?
Please share your suggestions.
