IFW - multi source, generational management, more

ImageWb is a set of Windows 'batch' script files intended to enhance Terabyte Unlimited Image For Windows (IFW). Run from command line or SCHEDULED TASK in BACKUP mode only.

My purposes were:

- to enable backup of all or multiple data sources in one command

- to provide simple image file naming & generational management

- to provide sensible, easily maintained defaults for important IFW options.

Feedback welcome.
Thank you
David

I wonder who has the cajones to download and run batch files from an unknown source first. The readme file does not indicate that this 'David' is 'our' (TBU) David.

The readme file contains my name & email address. No, I am not TBU's David. I am David Lee Andrew. I live in Adelaide, South Australia.

Batch files are, by definition, exposed source; you can see what they are doing. You will also notice that the main program - ImabeWb - offers a DEMO mode. There is not a lot to be afraid of here; cajone's not required. What I am offering makes an in interesting contrast with Tom Cole's (TBU) space management approach.

At least look at the isNum function & compare my isDrive with TBU's function of the same name.

Enjoy. David

Thanks for making your batch scripts available for others to use.

Tidied up some displays.
- Added "Elapsed time" displays for defrag and backup.
- Allow this package to be used with Windows 2000
as tests show it to be compatible.
