    I have tried to create a batch file to backup our important data from our program to our server(drive letter Z)on our network and cant seem to get it to work.Could someone look at it and be able to tell me what is wrong with it. We also decided to include backing up our my documents folder too.

    @echo off
    :: variables
    set drive=c:procare.win
    set backupcmd=xcopy /Z

    echo backing up procare data
    echo please wait...

    xcopy "Z:\Procare\DB\*.*":\\dataonserver01\users\Jeannie\Procare.win"

    echo Backing up My Documents
    %backupcmd% "userprofile%\My Documents" "%c%\My Documents"

    echo Backup Complete!

    I guess it depends on what you're backing up. I use Beyond Compare to sync files between machines.
