System: WinXP and Win98SE

I need help with a script or vbcode that will automatically backup a file or files daily. The current format (so that I can identify the date it was backed up) is: date-filename.bak (ie. 040831-filename.bak).

I would prefer the date be generated automatically, but if there is a dialog box that appears so that the user enters the date manually, that would be fine also.

This particular need is going to be used as an intermediate step to the weekly backups of the datafiles, and is not intended to take the place of the full backup procedure. But I need a step in there incase the the file becomes corrupt, and the user does not know it until several days later, they can go back one or two days, not an entire week, to use as a starting point on the data.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Are these files all in the same Folder? Another idea would be to create a new folder and name it as the date and time + Backup. The system can get the time and date easily. That's not a problem.

Then copy the current files into that folder and preface the filename with Backup or not. Did you want to create a log of the files and their original locations in the folder too?

Do you have any code already started? If so, please post it.

Dim strFileName, nDate
nDate= Replace(Date(),"/", "")
strFilename = Cstr(nDate) & ".bak"

This will generate a date formatted named backup. It almost looks like you are trying to rename the files instead of doing an actual backup.

A1: The files are in the same folder, specifically there are two files that need to be done daily. Having it create a folder named as the date, and then copying the two files into that folder would probably work great. I'd be more than satified with that. The time stamp is really not necessary either. And since each date a new folder was created, it probably would not be necessary to rename the file name or extention.
A2: No log is necessary.
A3: Don't have any code, don't really know much about it (i.e. illiterate).


To Rockn -- Thanks for code snippet and your input, but because I'm new to coding/programming I don't have a clue what to do with it, or how to execute it. I appreciate it though. (y)

What about...

If 12:00:00 = Time Then
script to backup the files
End If

Everyday at 12'o clock it will perform the back up.

BackUpFileName = "MyBackUp" & Replace(Date, "/", "") & ".zip" (or ".bak")

I took this script for some VBS website. I didn't use it yet. you can have a look:

Backup Files (copy) With Logging Version 2... ( Vbscript )





Author: Tom Hingston

Description:
This script backs up (copies) folders or files to a preset backup location and logs that last 5 backup files. This is an improvement on an earlier script I submitted that only copied folder (not files).

Script:

'Tom's Cool Backup Script 16 JAN 2001

'This script copies all the files that are new or have changed,

Fredledingue --> That looks impressive, but could you tell me how to start the code, what do I copy and paste the code in, ect. Like I said in one of the other posts - I am illiterate, but willing to read and learn. :D

It's a wsh script. Kind of long winded just to back up certain folders. Why are you attempting this anyway? If you have certain files that need to be backed up and renaming the file in the process. Don't you have backup software that will do it better than a script or batch file? Most newer OS's already have backup utilites that work just fine for basic backups.

Holy smokes. Let's keep it simple. This is not a difficult task. If you put a script in the same folder as the files you will not need much. This will just create a subfolder inside the origianal and then copy the two files into it. BUT for housekeeping you might like to delete any of the backup folders if they are a week old. IOW which have been backed up by the weekly backup.

If you want to write a script you need to supply the exact path and filenames in question.

Here's a simple example. I wrote a vbs and put it in the C:\ Drive. I have two files named 1.txt and 2.txt also in C:\


This will create a folder named Tuesday, August 31, 2004 so now you have a new folder >> C:\ Tuesday, August 31, 2004 ( if run today).

This script checks first to see if the folder already exists and if so alerts the user and exits.
If the folder doesn't already exist then it Creates the folder and then copies 1.txt and 2.txt into it.

To create this vbs open Notepad and copy the contents of the code box into it. Name the file as Backups.vbs
Save as type:All files
Save it in the C:\ drive for this example.
Double click on Backups.vbs to run it.
If you are starting the Computer each day you could add it to the Startups. Or there are other ways to schedule it to run. But yo do not want this eating up a lot of CPU or memory.

Code:
Dim fso,N
Set fso = Wscript.CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")
N = FormatDateTime(Date, 1)

If Not fso.FolderExists(N) Then
fso.CreateFolder(N)
fso.CopyFile "1.txt" , N & "\1.txt"
fso.CopyFile "2.txt", N & "\2.txt"
Else MsgBox "Folder already exists"
Wscript.quit
End IF

MsgBox "Done"
Ideally, to avoid an error we would also have the script check for the existence of the two files before it tried to copy them to avoid an error. A lot of code is written to prevent an error aborted script. We would also alert the User if either file didn't exist so they could take appropriate action.

In fact, as I think of it a better idea would be to create a subfolder named BU and add the dated folders into that. Then keep track of the ages of the subfolders there and delete any older than 7 days. Let me know what you think.

I decided to write a working version. The lines in the script beginning with an apostrophe are comments. They explain to you,the user, what each section of code does. Rules are the same. Create the script and add it to the C:\ Drive. Create two text files there too, C:\1.txt and C:\2.txt which will be copied to the subfolder created in C:\BU when the script is run. Read it through and see if you understand. All that will be left to do will be to change the location of the script to the actual folder where the two files you want to copy live, and the correct names of the two files you want to copy. Possibly the message boxes used to alert the user if there is a problem too.

Code:
Dim fso, N , f , directory, fc, f1 ,msg
Set fso = Wscript.CreateObject("Scripting.FilesystemObject")
N = FormatDateTime(Date, 1)

'Ascertain if both files you want to copy exist.
'If not, then alert the user and quit without copying anything.

If not fso.fileExists("1.txt") then msg = "1.txt missing"
If not fso.fileExists("2.txt") then msg = msg & " " & "2.txt missing"
If msg <> "" then 
MsgBox msg & vbcrlf & "Quitting. No Files Copied." & vbcrlf & "Check with your Supervisor."
Wscript.quit
End if

'See if the BU folder (Where you will create the backup subfolders) exists.
 'If not then create it.

If Not fso.FolderExists("BU") Then
  fso.CreateFolder("BU")
  MsgBox "Creating BU Folder"
End IF


'-----------------------
'Delete any subfolders older than 7 days from the BU folder.

Set directory = fso.GetFolder("BU")
Set fc = directory.SubFolders

    For each f1 in fc
      fso.GetFolder(f1)
      If  DateDiff("d", f1.DateCreated , Now) > 7 Then fso.DeleteFolder(f1) 
    Next

'------------------------


'Check to see if  Today's folder already exists.
'If not, create it and copy the two files.
'If so, then alert the User and end the script.


If Not fso.FolderExists("BU\" & N) Then
  
   fso.CreateFolder("BU\" & N)
   fso.CopyFile "1.txt" , "BU\" & N & "\1.txt"
   fso.CopyFile "2.txt", "BU\" & N & "\2.txt"

   Else MsgBox "Folder already exists." & vbcrlf & "No Files Copied."
   Wscript.quit

Copy-paste the script in Notepad, save it as BackItUp.vbs (not the vbs extention).
Find this file in Explorer, double-clic on it.

Note, that I never tried this script myself: use it at your own risk. But its by reading examples that I learned scripting.

Here is a script to detect files changed since "n" days. I also didn't try it but I assume it should work.


'Detect files changed since "n" days
'-----------------------------------

Function FilesModifiedSince (FolderSpec, Days)
Dim fso, fc, f, d
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set fc = fso.GetFolder(FolderSpec).Files
Set d = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

For Each f in fc
If DateDiff("d", f.DateLastModified, Now) <= Days Then d.Add f, f.DateLastModified
Next
Set fso = Nothing
Set fc = Nothing
Set FilesModifiedSince = d
End function

' Example, get all the files modifed since 5 days
' in the specified directory
Dim a, f

Set f = FilesModifiedSince("c:\dev\work\scripting", 5)
a = f.keys
b = f.items

For i = 0 To f.count - 1
WScript.Echo a(i) & " " & b(i)
Next

Set f = Nothing
WScript.Quit(0)

You could also use the Advanced Snapshot script that comes with ntlib.cmd. This script requires nothing but the builtin commands and utilities present in every installation of Windows NT4, 2000, XP and Server 2003.

The fully commented Cmd Source is here. The help screen is reproduced below.

Code:

 Interval time DOES NOT include time spent comparing and copying files.
 The Interval counter is reset at the beginning of each waiting period.
 Actual wait time is NOT PRECISE, and can overshoot by several seconds,
 depending upon system load (see the .Wait command).

 If any optional parameter is used, all optional parameters to it's left MUST

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their help.
The script written by Mosiac1 is the one that I have been working with, and does exactly what I was needing, and is simple enough for me to tweak.
Great work everyone ! Two (y)
