Sometimes you want an uncompressed backup...
I have run into many automated backup solutions, but they all seem to want to compress my data. A particular intranet site we have has data that I regularly need to access the backups of, and it is a pain to use backup software or compression day after day. To fix this, I came up with a script/batch file to do the work for me. I set it to run on a schedule and I get backups in tidy date-named folders every day with automated cleanup after a specified amount of days. It is pretty simple and straight-forward. Uses RoboCopy for the backups (included in the zip). Usage is as such:
The only things that are required are to and from. I put up a walkthrough of setting up batch files and scheduling for a different process here if you need a refresher.
