Hi all,

When I'm tring to create a little back up script I can get it to work fine for my id, here is what the code looks like now

msgbox(1, "Backup", "Once Complete another Message will appear")

DirCreate("h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

DirCreate("h:\backup\desktop")

DirCreate("h:\backup\favorites")

DirCreate("h:\backup\passport")

sleep(10000)

DirCopy("C:\Documents and Settings\%userid%\desktop", "h:\backup\desktop", 1)

DirCopy("C:\Documents and Settings\%userid%\favorites", "h:\backup\favorites", 1)

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\notes.ini", "h:\backup\lotus\notes")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.nsf", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.id", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.dsk", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

Where it has %userid%, I would like to have it for the current user signed on to the system. What would I need to put there?

Thanks all for your help

%userid% is a windows/dos variable. AutoIT's equivalent is @UserName.

DirCopy("C:\Documents and Settings\" & @UserName & "\favorites", "h:\backup\favorites", 1)

Cheers

hi,

you can also do this...

DirCopy(@DesktopDir, "h:\backup\desktop", 1)
DirCopy(@FavoritesDir, "h:\backup\favorites", 1)

New to script...But getting the hang of it.

Yep, check out the macro's in the helpfile for best results.

FileCopy("C:\program files\lotus\notes\data\*.dsk", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")

FileCopy(@ProgramFilesDir & "\lotus\notes\data\*.dsk", "h:\backup\lotus\notes\data")
