Help with backup and keep 5 backups

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have created a little program that should be used on a standalone client(not on network), where the user should manage backups to disk.

I have been working with different solutions for how to keep the last 5 backups, and i'm not a good programmer.

So what i want is that user can manage backups to disk, but everytime the user take a backup, it copy by date.... And automatic delete the oldest backup when I reash 5 backups.

Is there anyone who can help me out with the last lines in my script?

$versjon = "0.1"
;======================================================

#Include <Constants.au3>
#Include<file.au3>
#NoTrayIcon
#Include <Date.au3>

Global $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "MyErrFunc")

;$i=0


;======================================================
$MsgTitle = "Road Backup - TV 2 AS"

            if FileExists($outputdrive & "road") Then
                if FileExists($outputdrive & "road\lastbackup") Then

                EndIf
                
                DirMove($outputdrive & "road", $outputdrive & "lastbackup")

            EndIf
            
            DirCreate ($outputdrive)
            _FileCopy($sourcefolder,$outputdrive)
            
            if @error Then
                MsgBox(48,$MsgTitle,"Backup was unsuccessful")
            Else
                MsgBox(64,$MsgTitle,"Backup was successful",5)

Hi,

something like this:

Directory structure on backup drive, should be already created:

\road -> actual

\lastbackup -> backup before actual

\Tidligere backup_1

\Tidligere backup_2

\Tidligere backup_3

\Tidligere backup_4

Global $sourcefolder = "c:\road"

Func _backup ()
    $outputdrive = InputBox($MsgTitle, "Backup av Road data. Write in the path where you want to put your backup:" & @LF & @LF, "e:\", "",600,170)
    ;here may some checking for directory structure mentioned above
    For $i = 3 To 1 Step - 1
        $error = DirRemove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1, 1)
        If $error = 0 Then MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error removing directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
        DirMove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i, $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
    Next
    DirMove ($outputdrive & "lastbackup", $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_1")
    DirMove ($outputdrive & "road", $outputdrive & "lastbackup")
    DirCopy ($sourcefolder, $outputdrive & "road")
EndFunc

Hi,

Ooooohhhhh, i make a big logical mistake in my function:

Global $sourcefolder = "c:\road"

Func _backup ()
    $outputdrive = InputBox($MsgTitle, "Backup av Road data. Write in the path where you want to put your backup:" & @LF & @LF, "e:\", "",600,170)
    ;here may some checking for directory structure mentioned above
    $error = DirRemove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_4", 1)
    If $error = 0 Then 
        MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error removing directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
        ;Exit
    EndIf
    For $i = 3 To 1 Step - 1
        $error = DirMove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i, $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
        If $error = 0 Then 
            MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error moving directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
            ;Exit
        EndIf
    Next
    DirMove ($outputdrive & "lastbackup", $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_1")
    DirMove ($outputdrive & "road", $outputdrive & "lastbackup")
    DirCopy ($sourcefolder, $outputdrive & "road")
EndFunc

:D

Thanks, and i also had to change:

If $error = 0 Then 
            MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error moving directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
            ;Exit
        EndIf

to...

If $error = 1 Then 
            MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error moving directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
            ;Exit
        EndIf

It works fine now, thank you mr. :D

Hi,

have a look for return values, e.g. DirMove :

Return Value

Success: Returns 1.

Failure: Returns 0 if there is an error moving the directory.

Hi,

If you don't have the directory structure created, you should place a if FileExist before the DirRemove.

Change

$error = DirRemove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_4", 1)
    If $error = 0 Then 
        MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error removing directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_" & $i + 1)
        ;Exit
    EndIf

to

$error = DirRemove ($outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_4", 1)
    If $error = 0 Then 
        MsgBox (0,"Error", "Error removing directory " & $outputdrive & "Tidligere backup_4") ; if msgbox appears, check if directory exists

        ;Exit
    EndIf

You may post the error messages as well....

;-))

Stefan
