DirCreate("h:\backup\favorites")

DirCreate("h:\backup\passport")

DirCreate("h:\backup\My Documents")

DirCreate("h:\backup\printers")

DirCreate("h:\backup\network-drives")

sleep(10000)

DirCopy(@MyDocumentsDir, "h:\backup\My Documents", 1)

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

DirCopy(@FavoritesDir, "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")

FileFindFirstFile Returns a search "handle" according to file search string.

FileFindNextFile Returns a filename according to a previous call to FileFindFirstFile.

see help file for samples...

Cheers
