[6.5.49.0] Run an application after backup job?

Post by nereus » Mon Jul 16, 2018 1:34 pm

Hello,

I googled "syncback run application", but found nothing.

I use a group profile to include several backup jobs.

I need to run an application after a backup job is done.

It looks like a group profile doesn't include this feature (select group > Profiles > Modify); OTHO, it is available in a backup job (click on item > Profiles > Modify : "Programs Before/After", but this involves copying/files.

Is there a way to add an item to a group profile that will simply run an external application instead of copying files ?

Thank you.

As a work-around, I just modified an existing item to run a program through "Programs - Before > After".

FYI, make sure you use the right commands to switch directory when running a batch file from Syncback:

Code: Select all

SET basedir=d:\Temp\Backup.VSS\
cd %basedir%
[b]d:[/b]
I forgot the "d:" line, so Syncback would stay in "C:\Program Files\SyncBackSE"
