How to automatically backup all SyncBackSE profiles ?

Postby Thierry G » Sat Mar 15, 2014 3:02 pm

Hello,

I've setup many profiles - with SyncBackSE V6.5.30 - which run every day. I'd like to backup all profiles - that are stored in the Program Files (C drive) directory - in order to be able to reused them to restore my directories in case of disk crash.

It looks like profiles are stored in a Program Files\2BbrightSparks\SyncBackSE directory as sets of .ini files (5 files for each profile).

In order to automatically backup all profiles, can I schedule a backup of all .ini files in this directory? After a system disk rebuilt following a disk crash (which I do not expect!!!), could I just reinstall SynkBackSE an copy all .ini files in the new directory?

The obvious method would be to manually export each profile to an .sps file. But this is manual, and I have many profiles that I modify sometimes ... so I'd like to be sure I always have the last version of my profiles.

Thanks for any help.
Thierry

Don't know if it is the same in SE but can be easily done in Pro

Menu | Preferences | Options then click the Expert Tab
tick the 2 backup boxes then put something like:
D:\BACK_UP\SyncBack\%DAYOFWEEK%\ in the box underneath

Thanks TheVoyager for your suggestion. It works for SE as well.

Looking at the help file (I should have read it more closely before :roll: ) there is a command line syntax which can do that:
syncbackse.exe -export * [directory]

In Windows, I just scheduled a daily task that invokes it ... and that's it!
