About This File

This is a folder backup tool, after i got tired of using tools made by others, that had either lack of functionality,

or were overly complex, i decided to make my own, and this is it.

MirrorDir mirrors dirs as the name says, simply select source and destination hit scan, review in the list if that's what you want it to do and press start copy.

As this is a mirror sync tool, this means files that exist in destination but dont exist in source are marked for deletion.

Other tools have other modes like the incrementing copy which does not delete anything, but i made this for me,

only if there is a request i may think about adding features just for fun.

Whats more? There's a save/load of profile and the profile is what contains the list of source and destination folders, these are kept in prefs.ini in folder MDir in local appdata.

There are context menu's that allow for the removal of items from the profile list, either just for the list (in case you dont want to sync a specific folder, just this time)

or delete from the list and the .ini .

Best regards.



What's New in Version 1.5.4


Some buttons are now disabled when the functions can't be used, and are enabled when they can.

Added "clear" button for the lower listview.

Files in the destination now get their modified timestamp copied from the source files, this is because, in some situations like in samba shares, the files copied over to the network can get their timestamp changed, which would result in the tool always detecting a difference from the source, and trying to update these files in every run.

1.5.3: Small change to prevent an array error that could occur in a particular situation with right mouse clicks.

1.5.4: Fixed variable that would carry the value to subsequent scans, causing some files/folders to not be marked for deletion.

      Have you ever shut down the computer while still performing a backup? 
      If not, then ignore this post.

      Otherwise, this program may be helpful.
      It is registered in the startup folder after a query and then runs with every system start and ends only with system shutdown.
      Whenever a backup activity begins or ends, a message is generated.
      This prevents the computer from being accidentally turned off while a backup is still active.

      the following script is running quite nicely for a friend of mine doing a year of work and travel to have a backup at home for all the pics and movies taken with her mobile phone,
      The facts:
      At home: a VMWARE virtual machine with dropbox installed for her DB account
      On-the-Road: One mobile phone, Camera Uploads are activated for her dropbox account, one Laptop.
      The idea is to have a copy of *ALL* pictures and movies taken with the mobile phone *OUTSIDE* the dropbox folder, so that the DB Max Size is never exceeded.
      The script is running at home and doing this:
      Copy all content from the "Camera Upload Folder" within the dropbox folder to some folder *OUTSIDE* the DB folder Move all content from the "Camera Upload Folder" do some other folder *INSIDE* the DB folder to indicate, that the backup copies at home were done successfully  
      Dropbox is also installed on the Laptop she has with her. So on the Laptop she checks from time to time the destination folder inside the dropbox folder and moves the pics / movies on the laptop to some other folder outside the dropbox as well. By that final step the images are moved out of the dropbox on the mobile phone as well, so that there is always space left to sync more pics / movies.
      As moving pics / movies out of the dropbox folder on the laptop doesn't touch the copies in the mobile phone's "Gallery", she has all the pics / movies at all three locations:
      Mobile Phone Laptop VM at home  
      The folder names propably are different for non-German localized Windows and Dropbox, just modify them to meet your localization.

      Profiler - yet another backup script for Firefox and Thunderbird profiles
      It automatically detects the last recently used profile directories of Firefox and Thunderbird (installed versions, no portables).
      Clicking the Backup-Button creates a complete Backup of the found profiles with a timestamp.
      Restore deletes the according profile dir and extracts the content of the selected archive into the profile directory.
      Uses Winrar as compression tool, but feel free to change it to your needs
      Best regards

      hey guys,
      is there a way to post into the "Usenet" with autoit ?
      I didn't found any resources about it online.

      I found a very old AutoIt script for obtaining file version information (Properties > Details items like the version string, product name, copyright, etc.). It didn't work very well, so I rewrote it after I discovered FileGetVersion().
      The problem is that FileGetVersion() is returning outdated information that seems to belong to an old version of the file, long after the file has been deleted and recreated. Windows Explorer, on the other hand, shows up-to-date version info in the Properties > Details tab because (I think) it's accessing the cached file metadata and/or the latest version of the file. This looks similar to the Windows behavior in which (e.g.) the modification time for a previous incarnation of a file is still displayed by dir even after the file has been deleted and recreated. The timestamp is updated eventually, but in my case "eventually" is approaching infinity.
      Is there a way in AutoIt to force retrieval of the latest file version properties? Failing that, is there some external method (like a command or admin setting) that can force Windows to return the latest version info when requested by a program?
