File/Folder Backup Daily via Command Line Batch file

Postby dgoodale5 » Fri Feb 27, 2015 1:04 pm

I am new to Image for Windows and so far I really like it. Does image for windows have an easy way to do file and folder backups, or a workaround if that option is not available?

I have a few Windows 98 machines in my business that run legacy hardware. I need to be able to backup a specific file directory regularly, every single day. I can't figure out how to do this. I noticed there was a command line option called "/exlist=filename" with the ability to exclude certain files, but I do not want to risk deleting important program files. Is there a way to do a full backup of a specific directory that is on the root of the c drive . If so, can someone please explain this to me, or explain the format of the /exlist command.

Thanks for the help!

No, it's purely an imaging tool. File based is dime a dozen, all kinds of
options since it's basically just copying a file, but there are file backup,
archiving, versioning, syncing, etc... What I used to do is just run a zip
utility command line to backup individual files/folders to a .zip on another
drive (has options to freshen files (those with a newer mod date)).
