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,
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.
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 .
I have a custom configuration file which has key-value pairs as in below format.
BuildLocation:C:\Build BuildExe:setup.exe Release:r9.64.02 Silent:No InstallPath:default Compare :No MartUpgrade :Yes Bit:64 ERwinUpgrade:No I need to change the value of "BuildExe" using my program.
Is there any inbuilt function already available for these kind of files?.
Can any one help me how to do this.
